Before I saw it, I read in one of the customers' reviews that while watching this animation people tend to believe the characters being under impression that this is a live movie with real actors. I watched it today - it is totally true! I could see realistic emotions of drawn characters, which I never experienced watching animation. And I loved the story. Don't believe to trailer; what you saw there is not what you will find in the movie... the story develops in a very dynamic way with absolutely unexpected result! That was really entertaining, and thanks to other customers for not disclosing the plot in their reviews! Intrigued? Watch it! By the way, please keep your children out of this DVD, as there is some violence, a few explicit talks, and lots of serious social problems, which you would never be able to explain to them....

Very few animations can be approved by both adults and teenagers. 'Tokyo Godfathers' is one of the animations that has both great story and action. Great details in scenery really is one of the things you cannot easily find elsewhere. A story of how three homeless people trying to find the baby's real parents and how they get to interact with the society really is an interesting subject to see.

My Mother and I have watched this movie twice! We love it! It has a great storyline and animation. She is Japanese, so I try to find Japanese films that have English subtitles (even though she understands English very well).

I caught this movie on Sundance two years ago, and it is now a holiday favorite around my house. I can't remember the last time I saw an anime that was, not only, well executed; but also riveting. I recommend it for any anime lover who has the holiday blues.
