This week, film maker and comedian, Takeshi Kitano received France’s highest honour for arts and culture.
He is now a Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters.
From his beginnings as a comedian and his directorial debut of “Violent Cop” (1989), Kitano has come along way and for many years has been recognised internationally for his creativity.
I read a biography of his life.
Kitano really came from nothing and worked really hard.
