"Tokyo Godfathers" was created by Satoshi Kon, who also directed "Millennium Actress", a film that I absolutely adored. The concept of "Tokyo Godfathers" is less obscure and abstract than "Millenuunium Actress," and some might say less accomplished. It is however a very entertaining feel-good movie. Set around the time of Christmas, the movie centers around three hobos that include a middle-aged d... read more

A decent flick with a nice story; it wasn't exactly what I was expecting but it was not bad at all. The characters are fairly well defined and you fall for their back stories pretty easily so by the end of the movie it is touching to see what happens to everyone.

While not as classic as some of Satoshi Kon's other works, it's still worth a watch. I don't really think it deserves an... read more

"12.2.2013 Straight after Perfect Blue, watching Tokyo Godfathers does seem little odd, with it's more simple and happy-go-lucky Miyazaki-like (nothing away from that guy, since he does what he does usually in good outcome) plot, about three homeless folks finding a baby and going through Tokyo in search of her parents, but it works nevertheless. Movie focuses on one new-years eve and story stays fresh, with not just different plot-turns, but even more so, with having certain serious themes and "

"My favourite of Satoshi Kon's feature animations, 'Tokyo Godfathers' is a Chrismtas masterpiece about coincidences and miracles. Following the story of three homeless people who discover a baby in the trash on Christmas Eve and set out to find its parents, 'Tokyo Godfathers' presents us with an unconventional surrogate family whose up and down relationship with one another and the effect the baby has on it is the heart of the film. The plot is straightforward but full of surprises and the susp"

"Though its premise has good intentions and its urban-themed animation is quite lovely, Tokyo Godfathers comes across to me as one of the more conventional, less daring - and thus, less interesting - works by Satoshi Kon. "
