Lovely!!
19 June 2002 | by (vancouver BC) – See all my reviews

Like a Japanese answer to Snatch, this film is EXCELLENT! Well crafted, shot, acted and developed, simply a delight of a ride to be on. The development from sequence to sequence is a model of solid storytelling without cheese gimmicks or overt style. The reveals, character turns and incident occasions are masterfully handled. Simply delightful!
