This is without a doubt the most accessable Kitano movie so far. A very touching and comedic offering, Kitano is at his wicked best in this movie, look out for the scene at the bus stop which features a cameo appearance from his former 'Two Beats' stand up double act partner, its hilarious. The chemistry between Kitano and the young boy Masao is enchanting.
Once again, the cinematography is stunning, the editing clever, and the music, what can I say, John Williams has nothing on Mr.Joe Hisaishi.
An absolutely breathtaking movie. One of the movies you MUST see in this lifetime.
I wish Kitano was my Uncle.... Genius
