Kappa no Coo to Natsuyasumi
OMG!! This is a Japanese ↗E.T. story with a cute little water-sprite called a ↗Kappa instead of an alien. |
The writer and director Keiichi Hara is an old hand at creating charming kid-friendly movies. So what if he stole most (or perhaps all) of the story from Melissa Mathison and Steven Spielberg? ET was (or still is) a great story and can certainly stand a retelling.
SO expect a heart-warming tale of wonder as a very young mythical creature appears in modern day Japan, and struggles to adapt and survive in a world that has forgotten his kind.
