Description

Satoshi Kon jumpstarted his career as a feature filmmaker with the mindbending animated mystery "Perfect Blue." He followed up its success with another excellent film, "Millennium Actress," a sophisticated romantic fantasy like no other. Now comes "Tokyo Godfathers," his third feature-length animated opus. Inspired by John Ford's "Three Godfathers," the film centers around three homeless people who find an abandoned baby on a cold Christmas Eve. Together, they search for the infant's parents, and their adventure turns into an incredible journey of self discovery. This brilliant film is moving, funny and hopeful, but never overly sentimental, and achieves a strange "realism" only a Japanese animated film can.

    Realism in animation 5

    I think Japanese animations are famous for showing true to real life scenes, like as if you are watching a movie. I love this anime and I think it is one of the best I ever seen so far. The story touches upon social problems such as homeless people, violence in the family, poverty and others. If you would like to experience a serious anime packed with adventure, then watch this one. I highly recommend it!
