A kinder, gentler, folksier Japanese "Simpsons"
19 September 2006 | by (State College PA) – See all my reviews

Chibi Maruko-chan has been a mainstay of Asian television for many years. The film echos the basic plot of the animated TV show. A Japanese family living in a smaller city, with a caricatured mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, older sister, and -- of course -- Maruko. They yell, fight, do dumb things, but always seem to come together at the end. This film focuses more on Maruko's school and classmates. There are no English subtitles, so what I know is based on having watched the film (and many many episodes of the TV show) with my Chinese wife and daughter (who translate as best they can while busting their guts laughing). I wish very much that someone would either dub in the English or put in subtitles. It's a great series and a good movie!
