KIDS

General info
Original title: Kids
Country: Japan
Year: 2008
Genre: Drama, Fantasy
IMDB Rating: 7 106 votes
Plot: On the outside, tough scrap yard worker Takeo (Tamaki Hiroshi) seems to have nothing in common with the innocent, almost childlike Asato (Koike Teppei), but both are lonely souls bearing dark pasts. Crossing paths by chance, Takeo, Asato, and shy diner waitress Shiho (Kuriyama Chiaki) strike up an unlikely friendship, making life in their dead-end hometown a bit more bearable.

Asato was born with special powers that prove to be both his blessing and his curse: he has the ability to transfer other people's wounds to his own body. He can't help but try to heal those around him, including Takeo and Shiho, but his powers come at a painful cost. Asato's powers tore apart his family years ago and continue to tear at him in the present. With Asato determined to hurt himself to help others, Takeo may be the only one who can save his friend.

Kids is based on a Otsuichi novel and directed by Tatsuya Ogishima.

KIDS
Nippon Cinema, by kevin source: http://www.nipponcinema.com/db/review/kids/
«Being based on an Otsuichi story, I was expecting something a little bit darker. There are brief moments that seem foreboding, but then the sappy pop music kicks in and we’re suddenly put right back in TV drama-land. The characters have no emotional range to speak of, mostly because every motivation is spelled out in the script and the actors don’t even have the option of being subtle.»
