Review of Tekkonkinkreet (2006)

Moving picture, 111 minutes

Seen in 2016.

I suppose the intent was to demonstrate—sympathetically—the dark ideation of violent street children à la “Myths Over Miami”. There are momentary successes in that regard. This is one case where Studio 4°C’s aesthetics are entirely appropriate: These characters should be as ugly as they are. The superpowers and baroque environments also add some interest.
