Tekkonkinkreet (2006)

Amazon keeps recommending Tekkonkinkreet to me, so when I saw my local library had it on the shelf, I decided to take the risk. Well worth it! I was absolutely positively surprised. I already liked what the same people did on Animatrix, but really I was blown away. Definitely one for my ever growing collection!

Tekkonkinkreet is a really fresh animation, even four years after the release. The story as well both intrigued and touched me. This is not a children’s animation. There’s a perfect mix of a little bit of everything — humour, violence, philosophy, mystery, beautiful visuals and quirky character design… all in one. This film is dark in the way real life can be; illogical and not of a perfect narrative. In fact, nothing in this film strives for the perfect beauty you often see in the genre. And if there’s something I adore, it’s beauty in imperfection.  There was just enough of the unexplainable to keep me at the edge of my seat* and, I suspect, the same will (or probably has) divide viewers into those who “don’t get it” and those who don’t need to.



*well, seeing as how I don’t actually have a seat, I’m speaking figuratively. It’s hard to fall off a floor.

Heard it through the grapevine:

  • @XplodingUnicorn Vanilla wins hands down. Chocolate ice cream is simply vile, and ever moreso if there are chocolate chips involved. 5 days ago
  • After my first ever facial, I'm smooth af & sporting the up-since-4 panda look. You could smuggle little monkeys in the bags under my eyes. 5 days ago
  • I came to this cafe and ordered an ice latte and cheesecake. The cheesecake is too sweet. I'm pretty sure I'm dying. #sugaraddiction 6 days ago
  • @darthzini Joku ajatushäiriö selkeesti! 6 days ago
  • My dog is with my friends, the snake's been fed, I'm having a crazy night of freedom and indulgence. Yeah, on Facebook. Crazy. 6 days ago
