the unknown Kitano is unleashed!!!!
15 December 2002 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

Takeshi Kitano is worldwide known because of his violent movies such as Brother, Hana-bi, Violent Cop, etc. However in Japan is the other way around, he is mostly known by his comedy tv shows or duo-comedy shows (the two beats), where he got the name "Beat".

Minna Yatteruka! could be Kitano's masterpiece in comedy, but still very difficult to import. At least, Image has released in Hong Kong and USA the DVD of Minna Yatteruka (getting any?) with English subtitles, and we've been able to see the unknown Kitano in a hilarious movie.

First of all, I have to say that I've seen all Kitano movies, even Dolls, and this movie has nothing to do with them, it's a completely different story, has more to do with tv shows he directed like Takeshi's Castle.

So, the movie is just astonishing, it comes from the most stupid situation and developes through gag to gag. One hour and a half of cinema parody fullfiled with Japanese Manga stupidity. The rhythm of the movie is slow, very slow at some points for a comedy, but it's still a good movie. I found parodies from his other yakuza movies, Ultraman, even the gohstbusters! and I'm sure I missed a lot.

Overall Review: A very funny movie, a fresh product, but might be too weird for the general audience. So, if you are interested in the Japanese culture, in Kitano, or if you are openminded for new experiences in comedy, check for it, unless , discard it and look for American Pie.
