Kitano plays the title role (interestingly, also his father's name), a small-time criminal who finds himself the surrogate father to nine-year-old Masao (Sekiguchi) when the boy sets off in search of the mother he has never met. In a departure from the gangster films his European reputation is built on, Kitano's sharply observed comic road movie shows the Japanese director/actor in more slapstick mode, giving his offbeat wit a freer rein.
