YesAsia Editorial Description

Memories of Matsuko and Kamikaze Girls director Nakashima Tetsuya delights audiences and critics alike with the colorful tragicomedy Paco and the Magical Picture Book. Inspired by Goto Hirohito's play, Paco and the Magical Picture Book is ostensibly a children's film, but in the same way that Roald Dahl and Grimm's fairy tales are meant for kids. Spelling gloom and tragedy amidst campy comedy, fantastical elements, and family-friendly fun, the film follows the once-upon-a-time adventures of an orphan girl living at a very odd hospital. Just like in Memories of Matsuko, Nakashima overwhelms the senses with amazing production design and cinematography, wrapping pathos in glossy fairy-tale sets, bright art direction, eye-popping CG animation, and gung-ho musical sequences. Child actress Ayaka Wilson is perfectly charming as the film's titular heroine, holding her own alongside acclaimed actor Yakusho Koji (Retribution) and an all-star supporting cast that includes Tsuchiya Anna (Sakuran), Tsumabuki Satoshi (The Magic Hour), Kase Ryo (I Just Didn't Do It), and Abe Sadao (Maiko Haaaan!!!).

After losing both her parents and her memory in a car accident, young girl Paco (Ayaka Wilson) ends up in a hospital full of strange and wacky types including biker-chick nurse Tamako (Tsuchiya Anna), hysterical former child star Muromachi (Tsumabuki Satoshi), and tyrannical grump Onuki (Yakusho Koji). Everyday Paco wakes up with no memory of the day before, and everyday she runs to Onuki asking him to read aloud her pop-up picture book about a frog king and a crayfish wizard. Onuki, however, has no patience for little girls, and sends her flying. But as the days pass, even an old grouch like Onuki begins to show a soft side. And so, he decides to bring the picture book to life for the hospital's annual play.
