Tekkonkinkreet is a swirling, dazzling, kaleidoscope of sights, sounds, ideas, stories, and characters. Set in the fictionally splendid Treasure Town, a world that wholly embraces the instinctual fascination of urban mythology, with it's pop-ruritanian extravagance, it is populated with a host of interesting characters and ideas. It is a testament to the fantastical creativity and intellect of Japanese animation as it fills the screen with it's imagination, kinetic levity, vivid pallette and deep meditations. Treasure Town is a character unto itself, with it's own personality, majestic in it's conceptual invention and stunning in it's realization, the splendor of this city is reason enough to see the film. Like much of Japanamation (Paprika comes to mind), Tekkonkinkreet is a bold, evocative film that uses boundless visual expressions to encompass deep psychological drama.
