Takuya DAIRIKI 大力拓哉

Takashi MIURA 三浦崇志

Kinta And Ginji
金太と銀次

Nippon Visions   ½ 

Kinta and Ginji are best buddies. Sometimes they get on each other’s nerves, but they don’t hold a grudge for long. They are way too straightforward for that. Every other day, they meet up and roam the fields and forests, lie around in the grass, or make music. Just two normal guys – but one of them is a tanuki (racoon dog), the other a robot. Things get even more curious when other talking entities and objects appear! The weird characters and the long, atmospheric shots create a charming, surreal comedy, which unfolds its full potential through its absurd and funny dialogues. Dressed in handmade costumes, the directors Takuya DAIRIKI and Takashi MIURA took over the leading roles themselves.
