Description
Written and directed under his directorial name Takeshi Kitano, this 1999 film by Beat Takeshi was inspired by memories of his own father. Takeshi plays Kikujiro, a surly, middle-aged petty crook who is dragooned by his wife (Kayoko Kishimoto) into chaperoning their nine-year-old neighbor Masao (Yusuke Sekiguchi) on a search for his long-lost mother. Seen in episodes from Masao's summer journal, the trek hits a roadblock when Kikujiro gambles away the boy's traveling money. But as they hitchhike their way from Tokyo to Toyohashi, meeting oddball characters along the way, Kikujiro is reminded of his own absent mother, and sees a chance for redemption. In Japanese with English, French, and Spanish subtitles.

"One of Cannes Film Festival's best-loved films.... Wise, funny, sad, wonderful."Chicago Tribune
