From Takeshi Kitano comes the poignant coming-of-age story of two troubled high-school students, as they try to find their way into adulthood through the violent worlds of competitive boxing and the yakuza.
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.
