PG-13 | | Drama, Comedy
A young, naive boy sets out alone on the road to find his wayward mother. Soon he finds an unlikely protector in a crotchety man and the two have a series of unexpected adventures along the way.
Takeshi Kitano made this gentler film as an antidote to his usual violent gangster movies.
Hand over more money or I'll kill you guys!
Kikujiro's Wife: Quit playing gangster!
Around 00:42:09, when the man is jumping down, we can see the ground moving up, so it's a fake one.
There's one more scene after the credits.
