Challenge Day 3: Off the Beaten Path for a Great Movie You Need to See

Posted on 28 November 2011 by VinnieAve

Tell me if you heard this one an old tramp, a transsexual, and young homeless girl find a baby and try to find a home for it. Oh wait you haven’t than you haven’t seen Satoshi Kon’s 2003 film Tokyo Godfathers. If you have heard a story that resembles it then you might know that it’s a remake of a classic movie. So why you ask is this included in many nerdy Christmas lists is that this film takes place between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day.

I will freely admit that this is the first time I’ve seen this movie and part of the reason that I put it on was to hold myself to watching it. I have seen both Perfect Blue and Paprika (I own Millennium Actress but have yet to watch it). I was not let down by this film at all. It’s not as bizarre (it has moments) as either but it’s a Christmas film and I don’t need that.  This film works very well in developing the three main characters fully with flaws and history. This is not really a movie for children but a movie for adults who may have lost the magic of Christmas. Also it would be good for those of us how are anime fans to show to others to show that that anime isn’t just tits and robots.
