kikujro is a fine film although some critics disliked it. My favorite is Ran.

Kikujiro is a film putting together the innocence of both adults and kids. It touches the wonderland in not only the director's (Kitano), but also in our mind. There was a minute in the theater, I thought that I could live in that kind of pure and simple life again. :P

this movie deserved much much better.
a flexing of style.
a surrogate parent-child story where the surrogate
parent [thankfully] didn't Learn Something and Grow in
a Meaningful Manner.
a flat out masterpiece.
why isn't this japanese renaissance man
[it seems the only thing he cant do is ride
a motorcycle]
toasted more?

is it just me, or does the main theme from this
movie sound more than a bit like roxette's 'listen
to your heart?'

I thought this was a thoroughly charming movie; I was completely enchanted by it. Although it could have easily fallen into the "kid-with-a-sad-story-wins-over-tough guy" cliche, this film easily avoids falling into that trap and instead comes across as a warm, poignant film of simple beauty and charm. It's nice to see so many fans of Japanese films.
