Fireworks 1997 ★★★★★

One of the most beautiful movies I've ever seen. Kitano is brilliant in front of and behind the camera. Joe Hisaishi's lyrical score is moving. The story of a violent, tormented man in search redemption is presented in a unique way.

With its small, unsuspected touches of humour and its delicate representation of love and damaged relationships, I was enthralled from start to finish. The ending hits hard and will stay with you.

Flashes of violence mix up well with the overall gentle tone.

Superb cinema.
