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

[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

My biggest disappointments in entertainment (118 tv items)

"This is the second Satoshi Kon movie I'd watched, and to be honest I don't have much to say about it which I didn't say on the previous two entries of this list. It combines the bests and worsts aspects of the previous movies, ending with a barely decent movie, because the premise is still about Christmas silliness. The anti-escapism messages here are delivered through a very human drama, just like Millenium Actress, which is accompanied by a touching catharsis for every major characters, all in"

"22nd of September, DVD Satoshi Konin tuotantoon tutustuttu vaihteeksi lisää. Perfect Blue on edelleen miehen paras teos, mutta kyllä tämä tulee perässä hyvänä kakkosena. Tokyo Godfathers on lämminhenkinen nykyajan joulutarina, joka kertoo tarinan kolmesta kodittomasta sekä hylätystä vauvasta. Mikään Kolme miestä ja baby -tason keskinkertainen komediasähellys tämä ei ole, vaan kertomus yhteiskunnan vähäosaisista ja ulkopuolisista. Löydettyään juonen keskiössä olevan vau"
