Storyline

Sabu and his pals hold a pauper's funeral for Sabu's mother. His brother Jiro arrives home, fresh out of jail, and Sabu pointedly states that Jiro is not invited. Jiro meanwhile is planning a big job - steal 40 million in cash and drugs, and he invites Sabu and gang to act as decoys, for 50,000 each. The sting is a success, but the double-crossing starts almost immediately. Sabu discovers how little of the take they were promised and hides the stash. Jiro and his slimy partner pressure the kids to fess up. Meanwhile, their respectable elder brother Ichiro is being leaned on by the town's big boss, whose money it was. Written by sharptongue

Fine gangster movie
31 March 2003 | by (City of Dead Kings, Denmark) – See all my reviews

A finely crafted gangster film about three brothers, each with his own relationship to a powerful crime syndicate, and a heist the middle brother plans on that syndicate. The story and plot easily bears comparison with any in modern movies with a similar theme. Even the two song-and-dance numbers make sense, in that they serve to characterise the younger brother's gang as youthful and naive. Well worth seeing - even if you don't speak Japanese.
