In the tradition of Central Station comes Kikujiro, the highly acclaimed new film from Takeshi "Beat" Kitano, the award-winning director of Fireworks (Hana-Bi) and Sonatine.

Lonely nine-year-old Masao leaves Tokyo in search of his mother, a woman he's never met.He's accompanied on his journey across the Japanese countryside by surly, middle-aged petty crook Kikujiro (Kitano), who is none too happy being the chaperone.When Kikujiro gambles away all of Masao's travel money, the two must rely on their wits and the kindness of colorful strangers.Along the way, as the two share a series of wild and unpredictable adventures, they end up at a destination that neither of them could have imagined.Kikujiro has been hailed as "A beautiful, warm and inviting film." - Kevin Thomas, LOS ANGELES TIMES
