Tekkonkinkreet demands to be seen.” – The New York Times
“By the end of this phantasmagorical journey, I was as wrapped up in the precarious fate of these two wounded kids and the honorable yakuza warlords of Treasure Town as I’ve been in any film all year.” – Salon
In this metaphysical tale of survival in a city that seems to be poised on the brink of disaster, a pair of feisty young street urchins attempts to protect an unnamed metropolis from a diabolical villain whose plans to raze the urban landscape on the behalf of malevolent real-estate developers threatens to destroy the very soul of the city.
Dir. Michael Arias. 2006. 111 min.
