Hoezo in KINO

Kon’s most narratively traditional feature is a heartwarming interpretation of the ’three men and a baby’ premisse, set here on the frozen streets of Tokyo around Christmas time. The beautifully conceived oddball characters live a life of vagrancy in Japan’s sprawling metropolis and the film sheds a light on the disenfranchised often ignored in Japan’s rigorous society. Tokyo Godfathers‘ toned down visuals and storytelling feel more akin to European animation like Le triplettes de Belleville but the hand of the master is felt in its genuine empathy for the characters. Japanese language with English subtitles. On April 20th Lotte Steerneman (programmer Camera Japan) will give a short introduction.
