Recently watched another masterpiece from Takeshi Kitano.
Plot in a twitter format: Old yakuza gathers his very old yakuza friends to do some brutal yakuza stuff and compete for turf of a small Japanese town.
The movie is full of humor and subtle and gentle moments that reflect on the matters of our short lives and temporary friendships. It is shot in a calm, very Kitano manner and gives a great, pacifying visual experience.
If you want to get away from once again Beauty and King Kong, check it out.
8/10, yanking two points for poor special effects.
