Most enjoyable 1966 b/w noir thriller from Japan. Super jazzy soundtrack, great cinematography and solid performances all round, including that of a very young little girl. A deal done in jail as one of them is released just over a week before the other precipitates a tough and non-stop action movie with great location shooting evoking a fantastic picture of late sixties, back street Japan. I thought I had lost the drift fairly early on but it transpired it was intentional, so all was well and particularly for a Japanese film of this period, it is remarkably simple to follow, despite all the usual complications and cases of double cross. Maybe. Oh and as usual you won't anticipate the ending.
