Best Yakuza-film ever!
14 January 1999 | by (Cologne, germany) – See all my reviews

Not only in my opinion, but also in Paul Schrader's, this is the ultimative in Japanese Yakuza movies. All the figures are absolutely brilliantly portrayed, with the wonderful FUJI Yunko in an atypical role which nevertheless made her famous. It's about a professional female gambler who is confronted with a gang war, and who tries to save the love of young couple. Meanwhile, she brings seeing back to a young girl, but cannot help her after that... (This plays a big role in the sequel, HIBOTAN BAKUTO - ORYU SANJO). Seldom had a Gangster movie shown so much humanism, and seldom the japanese Widescreen-Processing, which is even larger than your average Cinemascope, was used more effectively. Kato brings in his stylish mixture of genre film and expressionist pictures not seen since THE BAD SLEEP WELL, and never seen in a colour production before. The only disturbing fact is the director's affection for inhumane rape sequences, but they are here very short. Great stuff for all fans of japanese movies.
