Critic Reviews for Achilles to kame (Achilles and the Tortoise)

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (2)

  • Takeshi Kitano in a contemplative, pretty-but-is-it-art mood.

    September 15, 2008
  • As the third part of a self-mocking trilogy "Achilles and the Tortoise" may be a bit long in the tooth, but as a standalone film about the perceived value of art it has quite some interesting things to say.

Audience Reviews for Achilles to kame (Achilles and the Tortoise)

    Something is missing. Achilles to kame actually begins with a smart fable that poses its meaning almost before the movie ends (you can completely predict the last title card before it is shown). Kitano, however, makes a very uneven testament of that misunderstood and obsessed artist. It took me half ot the movie to realize it was a comedy, so it may be seen as three different skecthes... And even so, I was left cold. 62/100

    Kitano keeps doing his personal movies. In his last two movies we saw the "actor Kitano" and the "film maker Kitano", now it's time to see the "artist Kitano". First we see a kid whose dream is to be a painter, then we see him struggling as a young man and the real show begins when he gets old to be Kitano himself. All his life he never stops painting. Kitano has something to say about art and paintings and he is saying it in his quirky and funny way. A must see for Kitano fans and for people that are interested in painting.
