Meg (megvt) | 362 comments What a delightful film! You have to watch just to fall in love with the young Japanese son who steals the show. The movie takes place in the early 1950's in Tokyo. TV's had just come out and the boys wanted one desperately. Their neighbor, who lives as close as a sneeze, has one but mom won't let them go over and watch. Well the boys decide they are going to harass their parents into getting the TV. Unfortunately, the family is not a wealthy family, and it seems that every effort will be futile. So, boys being boys, try everything from temper tantrums to begging, and nothing works. In a last ditch effort they decide to stop talking until they get a TV.

A great movie to watch, there are quite a few chuckles and various themes interwoven.
