A sweet family film from Kitano.
Kikujiro (1999) is a tale about a little boy who so desperately wants to see his mother. He's accompanied on the trip by an old rascal named Kikujiro. The two make an unlikely pair of traveling companions. It's a sweet film and an interesting change of pace for Takeshi Kitano. He plays

with more of his comedic side in this picture. I enjoyed this movie very much. A fun trip down memory lane. Kitano shows that he can be humorous and light hearted as well as he is hard-boiled and stoic. Recommended.
