A Boy and His Samurai
Original title: Chonmage purin
- 1h 48min
Kidzhima Yasube, the Samurai of the period Edo, is postponed to 180 years ahead to Japan of our days. There he meets the divorced woman Hiroko and her son Tomoyey. She invites Yasube to herself to live, and for food and a lodging for the night asks it to help about the house. The former Samurai begins to cook cakes for Toma and thanks to them becomes the famous confectioner. The relations between this Trinity become more and more warm, but day when they have to say goodbye with each other, already not far off .
This was a sweet well done movie. Like one person said, it is a shame not many people will see it because it has subtitles and not well known. The clash of culture values is not "bigot" as another viewer said. The clash is the fuel for humor. It was a beautiful movie done with no cgi. I almost passed it up because there were no special effects. Don't make the same mistake I almost made.
