    "Tokyo godfathers" tells you a better story about family, love, people and life in 1h 32 than all of the movie on these subject made by DreamWorks Animation, 20th century Fox and Universal put together, for a 100th of what one of their movie costs.
    It's simple, the first time I saw that film, I left the theater and felt much lighter than I was when I stepped in.

    Being a story of love, human kindness, and friendship; Tokyo Godfathers seamlessly integrates its themes within a loving, emotional, and spirited Christmas tale.

    The story takes some kooky turns and, at times, delves into the supernatural.

    It's a touching movie that, like the best animes, transcends the limitations of the genre.

    With its masterful grasp of comedy, pathos, social commentary and mystical weirdness, Tokyo Godfathers takes anime to a whole new level.
