Tokyo Godfathers

This unusual piece of animation comes to us from Japan, but is actually a remake of the popular John Wayne flick 3 Godfathers. The story has been transported to modern-day Tokyo where a trio of homeless people (an alcoholic, a transvestite and a teen runaway) discovers an abandoned baby on Christmas. The film follows their subsequent quest to locate the kid's mother. This one's a small gem, mixing the realistic and the romantic into a unique package filled with subtle feel-good fantasy. 92 minutes
