Brash, loudmouthed and opportunistic, Kikujiro hardly seems the ideal companion for little Masao who is determined to travel long distances to see the mother he has never met. Their excursion to the cycle races is the first of a series of adventures for the unlikely pair which soon turns out to be a whimsical journey of laughter and tears with a wide array of surprises and odd ball characters to meet along the way.

“Takeshi Kitano makes a lot of gangster movies, some special and some over brutal, in the late 90s he made a movie about finding happiness "Kikujiro" and one of his best work as an actor and director he brings a lot of heart bakajaro.

On his way he meets a grumpy old man Kikujiro and his wife, his wife insists that Kikujiro follow with Masao so he can protect him during his trip. Against his will Kikujiro follow him to his journey. Their journey brings a lot crazy places, funny characters, and most of all they learn about life and enjoyment, no longer a grumpy o” read more
