Film, 2006

I was kind of expecting a wild movie about kids who surf on cards, but Tekkonkinkreet turned out to be a dark melodrama about two kids who live in a gang controlled city who can jump really high and get stabbed. It tried hard to be awesome, but mostly fails. There’s some undeniably beautiful images, like the beautify rendered backgrounds and vertigo inducing jumping sequences, but there’s even more skin-deep metaphors and tritely dark posturing. 2.5
