Exactly what you'd hope for when the most insane/creative/unique director on earth decides to make a family film!
An extremely enjoyable movie!!! It focuses on a kid who lives with his grandmother, trying to go meet his real mother. Takishe is forced to accompany the child in order to ensure a safe trip. Luckily he screwed up & misbehaved in a wide assortment of hilarious situations.
Definitely recommended as an enjoyable movie to watch for everyone. There is enough unique visuals and interesting situations to easily entertain any first time viewer.
The dialog is also extremely light, no 10 minute conversations or useless stuff like that. So dont let the subtitles deter you from viewing the movie.
