In Takeshi Kitano’s summer road movie, Kikujiro, a young boy searching for his estranged mother sets out from Tokyo into rural Japan with an unruly former Yakuza as his guide, begetting a series of misadventures, felonious incidents, comedic interludes, surreal vignettes,  and tender moments, as bonds of affection form between the unlikely pair.
