Very nice(and at moments very funny) road movie..
Strongly recommend it for viewing..
The story is about a small kid, who is living in a small flat with his grandmother. It is the beginning of the summer and all the kids are leaving for holidays with their family..
Having no family , the kid travels to the place where his mother is working.. In order to protect it (??) Kitano travels alongside and creates comical situations..
As with any other road movie, the important part is not the destination but how the travellers characters interact and evolve during the trip.
The ending is brilliant....
