Tekkonkinkreet Review

| |

It's not easy describing Tekkonkinkreet; the story of two kids named Black and White (sounds like a JPRG already, no?) who are the protectors of the city known as Treasure Town. Years go by and things as yukuza captains run into the mix and turns their somewhat innocent beings into total carnage and despair. And like a video game, it mixes 2D with 3D in a way that's vibrantly mesmerizing, bleeding the world off the screen, and engages in characters that are both believable as they are entertaining. It's an intellectual piece, with actors voicing opinions according to personalities and kids were kids - who reacted to situations like kids, and this kept the movie covered in an undescribable darkness that continued up until the very end. Though, you're alright with these morbid undertones, you'll love this beautiful piece about the innocence of being and the darkness of souls. 8.6/10.
