My second Seijun Suzuki movie comment of the day...
One more time folks, sorry, you will certainly kill me, but I once again watched this item without any subtitles. It is very unbearable to me too. I guess that, for the previous movie, I gave a good job, although the story was not so hard to follow and understand. This one takes place in modern days, in an urban setting, with an effective music score, full of rhythm, and is no more than a drama, with some action sequences involving the hero and some hoodlums, not really high scale Yakuzas although. Good acting and directing. As many Japanese films, it seems to be tale of friendship and honor, of love and treason. I am ashamed to receive those features subtitles free, but I think my comments are better than none. I am sure some one, one day, from Japan, will do it for me, and for every one.
Not a film noir but an action drama, far from the Kinji Fukasaku flicks.
