Kikujiro (Kikujirō no Natsu (菊次郎の夏, literally "Kikujirō's Summer")) is a 1999 Japanese film starring, written, and directed by Takeshi Kitano. Its score was composed by Joe Hisaishi. The film was entered into the 1999 Cannes Film Festival. Kikujiro tells the story of a young boy searching for his mother during his summer vacation. The film is mostly divided into smaller chapters, listed as entries in the boy's summer vacation diary. Kitano's inspiration for the character (not the film) was his own father, Kikujiro Kitano, a gambler who struggled to feed his family and pay the rent.

The abosolute BEST soundtrack ever made, Kikujiro is the story of a boy trying to find his mother over summer break. Along with his companion/farther-figure (played by Kitano himself) he is met up by a several very interesting characters. But this isn't a review of the movie, is it? No, by far….

The music. When I hear music, I hear the score for this movie. I once saw the ending credits for this movie while flipping around stations one night and was amazed. Lo and behold it was done by Joe Hisaishi, who also did many well known works, Mononoke being the best after his masterpiece. This.

This soundtrack changed the way I look at music. Everytime I pick up my guitar I play the main theme "Summer" and smile as I see the aesthetics of the notes roll through my mind. To fully understand what I'm saying, you must hear this soundtrack. Hell, go ahead and buy it. If you are a fan of any type of classical or soundtracks or even seen the movie, you should know what I mean.

From the first track to the last, this score is made up of basically 2 or 3 themes, but with Joe Hisaishi's AMAZING piano work, it makes you rethink if John Williams is even as good as you thought he was. Joe Hisaishi is the best composer alive today, and this is his masterpiece. A true gift.
