Takeshi Kitano (北野 武 ) is a director, actor, author, and screenwriter, known exclusively for his filmwork. With the exception of his works as a film director, he is known almost exclusively by the stage name Beat Takeshi (ビートたけし).

Tired of being told, that his films were so blue and violent, Kitano decided to make a film full of colours and love.

Inspired by a childhood memory, Kitano created a complex journey thru life, love, the seasons and the themes of Chikamatsu.
