Kikujiru Movie Review: This Japanese drama is about the friendship between a small boy and a washed-up yakuza. When young Masao discovers a picture of his long-lost mother at his grandmother’s house, he leaves the city and goes in search of her. Travelling with the lazy, small-time gangster Kikujiro, Masao’s journey gets off to a bad start when the pair lose all their money at the racetrack and must continue on foot. As their journey develops, and as they reach their final destination, the pair begin to appreciate that the most important thing about their quest has been the time they spent together.
