From the Animation Studio That Brought You The Animatrix.
Tekkon Kinkreet Anime Blu-Ray DVDFrom the creators of Animatrix comes this visually-stunning new anime film based on a popular Japanese manga written by Taiyo Matsumoto. In Treasure Town, where the moon smiles and young boys can fly, life can be both gentle and brutal. This is never truer than for our heroes, Black and White, two street urchins who watch over the city, doing battle with an array of old-world Yakuza and alien assassins vying to rule the decaying metropolis. Tekkon Kinkreet is a dynamic tale of brotherhood that addresses the faults of present day society, true love lost, and the kindness of the human heart.A brutal elegy for our changing times as well as a tour-de-force of visual artistry, Tekkon Kinkreet is a deeply resonant story with a heart. The title Tekkon Kinkreet is a play on the Japanese words for 'concrete,' 'iron,' and 'muscle,' and it suggests the warring images of steel and concrete cities amassing against the powers of the imagination. Until now, at least in imports abroad, anime style has almost entirely been characterized by wide-eyed heroes, big robots, and uninspired plotting. Tekkon Kinkreet jettisons these stereotypes in favor of a more realistic, European ethos, successfully incorporating engaging child characters and a complex action plot into a poetic, engaging story.

"...thoroughly mind-blowing, and the film's visual sensibility is utterly distinctive.  Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
"As intriguing and unusual as its title...bursts with enough ideas for three movies.  Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News

Editor's Note
This animated saga is based on the serial manga "Black and White" by Taiyo Matsumoto. In it, two gangs of orphans compete for territory on the mean streets of Treasure Town.

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"TEKKONKINKREET demands to be seen, if only for its beauty. The generally bright palette and overall soft look work a nice contrast to the dark theme..." 07/10/2007 p.E8

Reel.com 7 of 10
First-time director Michael Arias's Tekkonkinkreet is an anime with all the usual strengths and weaknesses that characterize Japanese animation...It's conceptually bold, fast-paced, and skillfully combines old-fashioned comic book heroism with modern concerns about technology and its dehumanizing effects. It's also vague and confusing, and suffers horribly by comparison to American studio animation in terms of precision and texture. The movie will probably play better on home video than it does on the big screen...In the most extreme action and dream sequences Tekkonkinkreet's weaknesses become strengths--the abstract faces and locales feel hallucinatory and vivid rather than vague. Since the movie more or less abandons all pretense of naturalism somewhere around its midpoint, in the end the expressionistic frenzy of light, movement, and color that takes over is enough to make it worth seeing. - Jim Hemphill
