Synopsis:
Takeshi Kitano's sixth film is a cinematic tale about Shinji (Masanobu Ando) and Masaru (Ken Kaneko), two high-school dropouts, growing up in a Tokyo suburb. Shinji and Masaru are playful, self-centred and irresponsible. They wag school, ridicule their teachers and bully other students, and spend most of their time at the local coffee house and noodle shop. Shinji pursues an amateur boxing career, but does not have the strength or determination to succeed amidst the cutthroat competition. Masaru joins a yakuza gang, quickly rising in the ranks of the local mob, but due to his lack of discipline, he too soon loses his position.
Three years later, Shinji and Masaru meet again and return to their old school.

Average Japanese drama. - Kids Return review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
13/04/2010

I'm a big fan of Takeshi Kitano's work and had high hopes for 'Kids Return' especially as it's taken 14 years to come to region 2 DVD. While it's great to see a previously unreleased Kitano film it is in reality a fairly average Japanese drama about two high school drop outs who join a boxing club which leads them taking two very different paths in life. If you're a fan to Takeshi Kitano then you'll want to see it, though if your not a Kitano fan then it's probably worth giving a miss.
