  1. dannyjp1981's rating of the film Tokyo Godfathers

    A “quest” anime propelled via a series of coincidences, Tokyo Godfathers has charm to spare and some beautifully drawn “sets” and cityscapes (the actual movement of characters  is not one of the film’s strengths). I found some of the voice work a little grating at times but the story is lovely. The music score sounds like something from a NES game.

  2. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Tokyo Godfathers

    Beautiful animation and a lovely story, with more than just a sprinkling of magic over it all, makes this one well worth your time. Three homeless figures find a baby, which is the beginning of a journey that helps them to eventually reveal some hidden truths and perhaps even start to change some of their attitudes. Written and co-directed by Satoshi Kon, this reworking of Three Godfathers is superior animated fare.

  3. Yvonx S's rating of the film Tokyo Godfathers

    Fast, furious and fun! Superb animation with well drawn characters (ho ho) and a racing plot that sprawls, strides and minces the mean streets of Tokyo. At the heart of the twisty turny narrative is tenderness and a wry humanity offering even the incorrigible bums of life a ticket to salvation. Thoroughly enjoyable wide-eyed romp.

  4. Tomasz kedzierski's rating of the film Tokyo Godfathers

    Witty, adventurous humour,journeyful plot and empathetic tweezer of a film. Loved it

  5. SiIencio's rating of the film Tokyo Godfathers

    Ultra-dramatic and over-sentimental underground tale of loss and love on the fringes of society. It is also an allegory of the first coming of Jesus, a baby born to bring Light to us humans on a cold and white Christmas night. Sweet and humble intentions. No high expectations. Serviceable.

  6. John Yau's rating of the film Tokyo Godfathers

    It’s what a Christmas need, heart warming, emotional roller coaster and beautifully written. Can’t wait for someone to a real life version of this

  7. Piero Reynolds's rating of the film Tokyo Godfathers

    Three misfits on a chaotic adventure filled with human feeling. One to warm your heart.

  8. Shane Ewen's rating of the film Tokyo Godfathers

    Tragi-comedy at its best with a fabulous animated Tokyo cityscape.

  9. Robert H's rating of the film Tokyo Godfathers

    What a delightful tale of coincidence and consequence! Three very clever characters and very natural story progression made this very easy to watch. Quite traditional animations for a Japanese anime - do look out for the dancing Eiffel Tower at the end. Also, I couldn't decide if the "left/"right" directions were intentional - they didn't ever seem correct! Well worth a watch before Christmas!

  11. Zachariah Rigby's rating of the film Tokyo Godfathers

    Feels like a 1930's Hollywood movie, but looks like nothing you've ever seen before.

  12. petit astronaute's rating of the film Tokyo Godfathers

  13. lina maj's rating of the film Tokyo Godfathers

    It had the very promising and interesting line-up of main characters, yet their potential and brilliance somehow got lost in the never-ending running around. On the other hand, the baby was really nice and landing from the skyscraper alone was worth five stars for me.

  14. F/K's rating of the film Tokyo Godfathers

    An alternative Christmas movie that's dark but ends on a bittersweet way

  15. Betül's rating of the film Tokyo Godfathers

    It is funny and lovely. I'm open for recommends like these Anime.

  16. smndvdcl's rating of the film Tokyo Godfathers

    What remarkably progressive storytelling with an animated gravitas almost painterly in quality. So much to love here.

  17. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film Tokyo Godfathers

  18. pluviosity's rating of the film Tokyo Godfathers

    The dancing towers and buildings in the end was perfect. Sort of bringing all the laughable and the body odours together.

  19. Bernard Batubara's rating of the film Tokyo Godfathers

    Hilarious and touching at the same time. Loveable characters. Left me in tears.

  20. Superfrog's rating of the film Tokyo Godfathers

    Unmistakingly good, both in the simple but effective animation and in the story in the first half. Regrettably becomes too hectic for its own good in the second half. When the unlikely becomes expected, there is not much to be surprised by. 4 stars because it is still very good and a must watch but would probably deserve 3 if this was a more general review on the piece.
