He is accompanied by brusque oddball Kikujiro (<strong>T akeshi Kitano</strong>)\, who seems to have nothing better to do other tha n shout threats and sniff out easy money. A conscious attempt to steer awa y from the hardboiled yakuza films that established his international repu tation\, Kitano&rsquo\;s picaresque road film displays the filmmaker&rsquo \;s unique brand of sentimentality and his exceptional gift for deadpan co medy. Featuring a memorable score by renown composer&nbsp\;<strong>Joe His aishi</strong>.&nbsp\;<em>\n</em>Co-presented with the&nbsp\;Japan Foundat ion.\nhttp://www.japansociety.org/event/kikujiro SUMMARY:Kikujiro 菊次郎の夏 (Kikujiro no Natsu) URL:/en/events/2016/11/04/kikujiro-kikujiro-no-natsu/ END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
