Product Details


Product Description

From the creators of Animatrix comes this visually-stunning new anime film based on a popular Japanese manga written by Taiyo Matsumoto. In Treasure Town, where the moon smiles and young boys can fly, life can be both gentle and brutal. This is never truer than for our heroes, Black and White, two street urchins who watch over the city, doing battle with an array of old-world Yakuza and alien assassins vying to rule the decaying metropolis. Tekkon Kinkreet is a dynamic tale of brotherhood that addresses the faults of present day society, true love lost, and the kindness of the human heart.

A brutal elegy for our changing times as well as a tour-de-force of visual artistry, Tekkon Kinkreet is a deeply resonant story with a heart. The title Tekkon Kinkreet is a play on the Japanese words for 'concrete,' 'iron,' and 'muscle,' and it suggests the warring images of steel and concrete cities amassing against the powers of the imagination. Until now, at least in imports abroad, anime style has almost entirely been characterized by wide-eyed heroes, big robots, and uninspired plotting. Tekkon Kinkreet jettisons these stereotypes in favor of a more realistic, European ethos, successfully incorporating engaging child characters and a complex action plot into a poetic, engaging story.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT Feb. 13 2011
Format:DVD
I'll write this for all those people like me. I have never been a fan of anime before. I was actually recommended this movie by two people who I greatly respect. Within the first 10 minutes I was doubting their taste. Sure enough after that I couldn't get enough. I was hungry but didn't want to pause to get food I just wanted the story to last forever. Needless to say after watching it, I am now afraid to watch any other animes because this one seems impossible to beat. I always hate starting with the best. I highly recommend this movie to anyone that is going to pay attention to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing piece of animation Sept. 18 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Let this movie take you to a different world where street children can almost fly from building to building and take on mafia thugs who try to take over their town.

Give it a chance even if you're not a fan of anime. The music alone will win you over, but the animation and characters will leave you asking for more as soon as the credits start rolling.

By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
If not quite the genius level of Miyazaki, this is still different,
thoughtful and original.

It involves two 13 year old boys, Black and White, who live in a run
down imaginary city, and who have to fight developers who want to take
the city over, and in the process destroy it.

Black is dark and angry and needs White's almost Down's syndrome like
simplicity and sweetness to balance him.

Obvious and heavy handed on a symbolic level, ('Black' and 'White' as
character names?) some of the animation is breathtakingly beautiful,
although the faces of the characters lack a certain expressivity. It's
more the backgrounds, the world itself, and the sort of mock stedicam
moving shots that are so striking.

See this in a theater, or at least on a great TV via blu-ray if
possible. It's such a visual piece, that seeing it in any lesser way
makes it likely to miss the film's greatest strengths.
