Strange experience to discover this offbeat gem from Japan

I am always surprised when I find a rare gem from the Rising Sun Empire. This one makes no exception. Filmed in black and white and in the usual LBX frame, this story doesn't bring many action sequences, but it is not boring at all. The story seems although somewhat confusing, hard to follow. A woman is watched by a couple of cops, who intend to follow her. The jazzy score from time to time enhances the good atmosphere of this movie. And the running time length is nearly two hours; too long for such a film. And overall, I can't recognize the characters between them. Because I know none of them. If they were Noburu Ando, Koji Tsuruta, Ken Takakura, Bunta Sugawara, Tetsua Watari, there would have been no problem for me; I know them all perfectly. I nearly watched all the Kinji Fukasaku's features...Films far different if you compare to this one.

But it's worth catching.
