Critic Reviews for Chonmage purin (A Boy and His Samurai)

All Critics (1)

But while the American version of this story might have involved Kevin James and a lot of farting, this justly acclaimed Japanese family film is magical and totally unexpected.

Audience Reviews for Chonmage purin (A Boy and His Samurai)

Trite time-travel story of a 19th-century samurai transported to modern Tokyo, and taken in by a simple mom and her 6-year old. The pattiserrie bent was interesting though, as were his kitchen/knifing antics.
