    The soundtrack was even better than the movie itself.

    I will say that there are flashes of creative brilliance throughout Kikujiro but with a two hour run time this coming-of-age road movie wears out its welcome.

    Avec Kikujiro, Kitano Takeshi est parvenu à réaliser un film extrêmement contemplatif, complètement absurde et pourtant incroyablement drôle et définitivement touchant. Impossible de rester de marbre devant les aventures de Masao et de ce minable malpoli, vantard et violent interprété par un Kitano qui n'a jamais été aussi attachant. En plus de partir dans des directions inattendues et de ne se refuser aucun symbole aussi naïf qu'il puisse sembler, Kikujiro est mis en musique par Joe Hisaichi et ce, de très belle manière. Comme d'habitude. Kikujiro est un petit bijou, un monument du road movie.

    Japanese version of 'Central Station'. Takeshi is a genius, who defines a new collocation for me - touching cult.

    I always had high expectations for Kitano's movies but I never expected this one to be such a great movie, Truly refreshing

    One of my favorite Beat Takeshi films. Yes, sweet and beautiful aren't words you normally use to describe Beat's films. But this is his most artistic and lyrical film ever. It is a road story that follows a good for nothing thug, and a little boy as they travel across Japan in search of his mother. Beautifully shot, hilarious and sad at the same time. Don't miss this one.
