[ citation needed] Plot [ edit] One Christmas Eve, three homeless people – a middle-aged alcoholic named Gin, a former drag queen named Hana, and a dependent runaway girl named Miyuki – discover an abandoned newborn while searching through the garbage. Deposited with the unnamed baby is a note asking the finder to take good care of her and a bag containing clues to the parents' identity. The trio sets out to find the baby's parents. The baby is named Kiyoko ( 清子), based on the Japanese translation of Silent Night literally meaning "pure child", as she is found on Christmas Eve. Outside a cemetery, the group encounters a high-ranking yakuza trapped under his car. The man happens to know the owner of the club where Kiyoko's mother used to work; his daughter is to marry the club owner that day. At the wedding, the groom tells them that the baby's mother is a former bar girl named Sachiko. He gives them Sachiko's address, but the party is interrupted when a maid, revealed to be a Latin American hitman in disguise, attempts to shoot the bride's father. The hitman kidnaps Miyuki and the baby and takes them back to his home. There, Miyuki befriends the hitman's wife and shows her some pictures of her family. Hana searches for Miyuki and Kiyoko while Gin takes care of an old homeless man who is dying in the street. After giving Gin a little red bag, the old man peacefully passes away. Some teenagers show up and beat up Gin and the dead old man. Meanwhile, Hana finds the girls and they go off to find a place to stay. They go to Hana's former club. Gin, who was rescued by another member of the club, is also there. The trio sets out to find Sachiko's house, but they discover that it has been torn down. They are informed of the unhappy relationship between Sachiko and her husband, who is a gambling alcoholic. The group rests at a store until they are told to leave by the clerk. Hana collapses, and is taken by Gin and Miyuki to the hospital. Once at the hospital, Gin finds his daughter, who is also named Kiyoko, working as a nurse. Hana berates Gin in front of his daughter and storms out of the hospital, with Miyuki following behind with baby Kiyoko in hand. Hana and Miyuki find Sachiko about to jump off a bridge. Sachiko insists that her husband got rid of the baby without her knowledge, and that they return the baby to her. Meanwhile, Gin finds Sachiko's husband, who confirms a TV report Gin saw earlier that Kiyoko was actually stolen by Sachiko from the hospital. They chase after Sachiko and the baby. After an intense car chase, Miyuki chases Sachiko to the top of a building. Sachiko reveals she became pregnant in hopes it would bring her closer to her husband. When her baby was stillborn, she decided to kidnap Kiyoko from the hospital, thinking, in her grief, the baby was hers. As Sachiko is about to jump off the building, her husband comes out of his apartment, located just across the street, and begs her to start over with him. Sachiko jumps off nevertheless, but Miyuki manages to catch her before she falls, but then Sachiko accidentally drops Kiyoko. Hana jumps off the building after Kiyoko, catches the baby, and lands safely due to a miraculous gust of wind. Hana, Miyuki, and Gin are taken to the hospital. Miyuki hands Gin his cigarettes and drops the old man's small red bag on the floor, revealing a winning lottery ticket. Kiyoko's real parents want to ask the trio to become her godparents. When a police inspector introduces them to the trio, the inspector is revealed to be Miyuki's father.

Movie critic George Peluranee notes that "Tokyo Godfathers is a film that shows the small yet significant ties that each of us have with supposed strangers, and tells well the story of miracles, family, love, and forgiveness. " [ citation needed] Susan Napier points out that Tokyo Godfathers is part of a trend in anime and manga as depicting families in an increasingly dark fashion, showcasing the problems with traditional families, and attempts by people to construct a "pseudo-family" out of an increasingly fragmented and isolating modern Japanese society.  It is put forth that despite the seeming criticisms of traditional families throughout the film, it ends with a more conservative feeling as everyone returns to their traditional/original families. Despite its seemingly traditional ending, the film offers a more radical version of family. Throughout the story these three homeless vagabonds unknowingly form a "pseudo-family" to protect themselves from the outside world and to overcome their personal demons.  Release [ edit] This movie was released in North America by Sony Pictures on December 29, 2003 in an unsuccessful attempt to get an Academy Award nomination for Best Animated Feature.  The movie was released on sub-only DVD on April 13, 2004,  and they've planned to use DTS for the DVD, but was ultimately scrapped.  Announced on December 19, 2019, international animation licensor, GKIDS, will release the movie on March 9, 2020 with a brand new 4K restoration and a new English dub.  Reception [ edit] The review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes reported that 90% of critics have given the film a positive review based on 68 reviews, with an average rating of 7. 07/10. The critics consensus states, "Beautiful and substantive, Tokyo Godfathers adds a moving – and somewhat unconventional – entry to the animated Christmas canon. "  On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 73 out of 100 based on 25 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".

What is he saying. Goyang bro. woow amazing. No spoilers - you just have to see it. Satoshi Kon continues his directorial success with Tokyo Godfathers. Like Perfect Blue and Millennium actress, TG wows the watcher immediately with the attention to detail. The scenes are exquisitely painted - when it is snowing you can almost smell it and feel the stillness. And the characters expressions convey emotions expertly by subtlety or caricature as occasion demands. Leave behind your Hollywood ideas of what a movie or worse, a cartoon should be. And then go see his previous two films as well. Satoshi Kon's films are true works of art.
Gada yg joget. The ending is even better when you realize that the movie used original lyrics and not Beethoven's. Трое бездомных — алкоголик-бродяга Джин, трансвестит Хана и беглая беспризорница Миюки живут на улицах Токио. Они уже давно позабыли, как это: иметь крышу над головой и есть три раза в день. Им уже ничего не нужно от жизни, и та равнодушно проходит мимо них, нанизывая друг на друга бесконечные серые будни. Но однажды в Сочельник эта троица находит на улице потерянную новорожденную девочку. И в опустившихся бродяжках просыпаются забытые было человеческие чувства. Герои решают во что бы то ни стало найти родителей малютки, еще не подозревая, что, став ее ангелами-хранителями, они прикоснутся к чуду Рождества и получат шанс изменить свою собственную жизнь….

I really enjoyed summer wars more than I thought I would. And Perfect Blue is amazing, terrifying, and still sadly relevant this many years later. Also, not a film, but Satorshi Kon also did paranoia agent which I really loved in high school. Good stuff. Sayang banget ngga ada yang berdanska... 0:58 シャキーン. Watyaaaaawwwwwww.
0:58 Me not rolling up to the party
Parece la cancion de la alegria, creo q asi se llama. Baru tau kalau non-jazz bisa manggung di java jazz. Hana is a homosexual man. The movie makes that fairly clear. Wolf children is really lovely and has a wonderful ost, though thick with emotion. the girl who leapt through time is touching and easy to comprehend my favourite anime film is in this corner of the world. it's not show-offy and pretty slow and long but does a great job of building the story and its main character.
