Tokyo Godfathers

Tokyo Godfathers ★★★★★

Tokyo Godfathers has everything you can ask for from a Christmas movie: Complex characters, family theme, Christian iconography, great humor, action, and also very well-done on a technical level. Quite tame and reality-based, not something you'd expect from the director of surreal works like Perfect Blue and Paranoia Agent, but Satoshi Kon succeeded in giving us another masterpiece nonetheless. Step aside Die Hard, go play somewhere else Home Alone, this is the ultimate Christmas film.
