Best I've seen in a long time
3 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I stumbled across this movie in a video rental shop in Tokyo, Japan. The cover didn't really look all that interesting so I didn't expect much, but I have to say it turned out to be the best movie I had seen in years.

I have looked for it many times since moving back to the US in 2000 but I couldn't remember the title. I finally found it, and bought it, this year.

Noriyuki "Pat" Morita gave a stellar performance and this is one that he should be remembered for.

I highly recommend this film.
