Tokyo Godfathers is a great movie for those who know anime and for those who don't. The plot is very simple, but the character development is very creative. The movie begins with an attempt to fool us into thinking that the only common bond between the three is being homeless. But as the movie progresses, the viewer learns why they are together and what they all miss. I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see an uplifting adventure in a non-traditional Christmas tale.

Satoshi Kon's third movie is about a homeless bum, transvestite and runaway finding an abandoned baby on Christmas Eve as they attempt to search for the baby's parents (in order to give them a piece of their mind). As the other reviews say, it's a really uplifting story about the spirit of Christmas, forgiveness, and destiny.
Unlike Kon's other two movies (PERFECT BLUE, MILLENNIUM ACTRESS) , this one is primarily a comedy and has a lot of funny moments and will get you shedding a tear or two. I didn't think this movie was as strong as his other two, but it's definitely a tearjerker if you watch it during the Holiday Season.

The third film from Satoshi Kon (Millenium Actress, Perfect Blue) rachets the state-of-the-art of anime film-making up another notch. This movie is simply amazing. Every nauance and detail of the characters is astounding. Most live-action films do not contain this kind of depth of character and story. And of course, this being a Kon film, just when you think you know what's going on, he twists it on it's ear, and it becomes a very different film from what you were expecting!
Get it! Get it! Get it!

Three homeless people are celebrating Christmas Eve together. Gin is a former bicycle racer who left his family after amounting incredible gambling debts; Hana is a drag queen who left the safety of her surrogate family after a violent incident at a bar; Miyuki is a young girl who ran away from home after a fight with her father. While rummaging through a garbage heap, they hear a baby crying and find an infant girl hidden among the trash. Determined not to let the child have unhappy memories of Christmas, Hana convinces the others that they need to find the child's family. Along their journey, each is forced to confront his or her own past and what forced them to turn away from their families.
Filled with beautifully animated scenery, great stories about friendship and family, and just a hint of the magical, director Satoshi Kon has crafted a marvelous anime film that goes beyond the futuristic action that I've usually associated with anime. The characters are very human, very believable. It shows you just what animation can do as a storytelling medium.

I consider this movie a breakthrough. It is the first I've seen that equals - or passes - good live-action movies for subtle development and interaction of characters.
It took the first 30-45 minutes to get going, but that time was used to establish the characters and the setting. Be patient - it's worth the wait. After that, the movie is really about families. I don't mean the "Leave it to Beaver" kind, with Mom, Dad, and their children by each other. I mean the real families these days, where the ideas of Mom and Dad need to flex and where the children are unrelated to one or both. I mean a real family with real problems, holding together because everyone is struggling to hold it together.
The animation is good and the character animation are very good, but excellence is the norm these days. The plot and story are what make this movie stand out. As an aside, I was interested to hear a few English words adopted into the Japanese idiom, "homeless" and "godfather" being the most obvious. I was also interested to see that the Spanish speech wasn't subtitled - English speakers will need to puzzle it through, same as the Japanese listeners did.
This isn't an "adult" movie, but there's not a lot here for kids. That's fine. Kids have their own movies, and we need ours.

* At the beginning of Satoshi Kon's full-length animated feature TOKYO
GODFATHERS, it's Japanese Christmas -- that most peculiarly contrary
of Japanese customs -- in Tokyo, and a family of sorts of three losers
is trying to get by. The group includes a middle-aged guy named Gin,
a drag queen named Hana, and a teenaged runaway girl named Miyuki.
Christmas Eve is just another night for these three "homuresu
(homeless)" sorts to get through, and colder than most such nights,
until Hana, while sorting through a pile of trash, finds an
"kurisamasu puresanto (Christmas present)" -- an abandoned baby girl.
Gin wants to hand the infant over to the police, but Hana becomes
attached to the little girl, who he names Kiyoko, and wants to track
down the baby's parents and find out what is going on. The result
takes the three on a wild ride of improbable misadventures and
remarkable coincidences, involving yakuza (gangster) bosses, Latin
American "guest workers", the proprietors of a (...) bar, and so on.
On considering the contents of this movie it becomes obvious that
there are many ways to do something like this wrong, veering into too
much sentimentality or moralizing, but TOKYO GODFATHERS plays it just
right, as a tragicomedy. There's nothing basically all that funny
about the three bums, each having a background with at least its fair
share of misery, but a heavy application of some very sharp humor,
mostly in the form of clever dialogue, keeps it flying.
