[Film] Tokyo Godfathers

"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

"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. "

"23.01. Cinema, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Satoshi Kon Got to see a few Satoshi Kon films for free in a local small cinema. This is often referred to as the Kon's "lesser" film but it's pretty good anyway. Great animation as you could expect from his films and the characters were fun. The story's pretty basic, the film is maybe a bit too cheesy overall and I don't like babies so I couldn't quite feel it as deeply as possible. "

Great Animated Films. (50 movies items)

"It is rare for an anime to be a christnas movie, and even rarer for a Satoshi Kon film to have such a straightforward, nonsurreal story. All of his films are very good, this one included. It has characters there stand far apart from usual anime stereotypes, and are in fact, original by any stadards. The animation is some of the best in japan, with far fewer keyframes and stills than is typical in an anime film. Good work, Mr. Kon. You will be sorely missed."

" On a chilly December evening, Hana, a transvestite, Misaki, a teenage runaway, and Gin, a retired bike racer, found little Kiyoko in the trash. For three homeless people, finding an abandoned baby might not have been the best of luck, but with good intentions and two cents to chip in, the trio set out to find the parents of the child. But locating the mother will not be an easy task, and all they have to go on is a small key..."
