Storyline

Koji, a jazz musician, takes a cigarette break in between sets at a Tokyo nightclub. He witnesses a murder and runs into a girl, Linda, who is being pursued by the killers. For the next two hours, Koji and Linda are running from both the hitmen and the police. Mistakenly identified as prime suspects, they have to solve the crime but time is running out: Koji has to be back to perform in his club by midnight, as a very special guest will be attending.

Shown in real time
16 August 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like the film "The Set-Up", this story is shown in real time. The story of a hapless ordinary guy who is pulled by a woman into a situation where he ends up in deep danger has been done in many noir and non-noir films. It's still entertaining if the couple and the villains are interesting. This and some humorous moments (like the tv viewer and the homeless man) make this film worth a viewing.
