This film, [sanctuary], is an excellent film based on a manga I have not read (by writer Buronson and artist Ryoichi Ikegami).
Akira Hojo and Chiaki Asami are friends from high school, who decide to change Japan.
We then go forward several years, and Asami has now become a secretary to Dietman Shuichi Sakura while Hojo has become a member of the Yakuza. Both have their leaders in their grasp. Their skilful manipulation makes for very compelling viewing, even if there is a lot of sex and violence.
Unfortunately, the film tells only part of the story. That's the weakness. And the fact that there are no more movies available.
