Dropping out of high school, two friends at first find success, one as a up-and-coming boxer and one as a low level gangster. Yet, their life decisions still find a way of catching up with them.
Takeshi Kitano’s spirited youth film concerns the coming-of-age and friendship of two displaced young men and their foray into the world of underground boxing. With music by Joe Hisaishi, and an unforgettable use of colour cinematography, Kids Return is a richly emotional paean to youth.
