He has a unique, impenetrable face. He's also an artist of many different facets. Takeshi Kitano embodies the new Japanese cinema, the archetype of the merciless Yakuza, but he is also a subversive visual artist, an unbridled TV comedian, an instigator of the conservative Japanese society... After dissecting artists like Guy Maddin, Yves Montmayeur creates this portrait of one of the most important auteurs in contemporary filmmaking.
