Reviews

Los Angeles Times - Manohla Dargis
As with the greatest animated films, the triumph of Kon's work lies not just in its beauty and singularly sophisticated storytelling but in how that beauty and storytelling combine to give the films a sting so human you can forget you're watching a cartoon.
80
The Hollywood Reporter - Unnamed
It's a touching movie that, like the best animes, transcends the limitations of the genre.
80
Variety - Ken Eisner
With its masterful grasp of comedy, pathos, social commentary and mystical weirdness, Tokyo Godfathers takes anime to a whole new level.
80
Wall Street Journal - Joe Morgenstern
A singularly strange and affecting comedy.
75
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
Like the comic strips of Ben Katchor, Tokyo Godfathers artfully appreciates the beauty and humanity in junked lives and landscapes.
