Taut Kinji Fukasaku gem which looks like an American film
17 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

You can watch this crime drama as a sort of Japanese DESPERATE HOURS. A just married ordinary man has his family held as hostage by three hoodlums who want him to do something for them. Get a big package of money from his boss, and not a Yakuza. This is not a yakuza movie, folks, but a true suspense film, a bit far from what Kinji Fukasaku used to show us. A tale told with a terrific nick of time pace, with splendid editing and simple filming skills. The main lead character, the poor man who is lost in the city because he knows that he must obey to what the gangsters ordered him to do, this man's play is so convincing. I was not lucky enough to see it with subtitles, and I am sure I unfortunately missed a lot. But I followed the basic scheme anyway. I would have imagined Koji Tsuruta as the husband's character. A golden gem that deserves to be seen at all costs.

Beware the terrific jazzy score which enhances the atmosphere of this awesome movie. I love crime films from Japan, and this one doesn't look like a feature from the rising sun country.
