Hi everyone,

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.
