Synopsis: “”Masaru, do you think we’re already finished?”” “”Hell no. We haven’t even started.”” Kids Return (???ยท????, Kizzu Ritan) is a 1996 movie written and directed by Japanese filmmaker Takeshi “”Beat”” Kitano. The film was made directly after Kitano recovered from a motorcycle wreck that left one side of his body paralyzed. After extensive surgery and physical therapy he quickly went about making Kids Return amidst speculation that he might never be able to work again. ‘Kids Return’ became his most successful film yet in his native Japan, which until then had been notedly much less enthusiastic about his films than international viewers. The movie is about two high school drop-outs who try to find a direction and meaning in their lives — one by becoming a yakuza lieutenant and the other by becoming a boxer.
