The story opens after a young female student kills herself by jumping off a balcony. And so we begin. A few minor details lead Detective Kanzo (Akashiya Sanma) to suspect that Ryo (Kimura Takuya), an enigmatic chef's assistant, knows more about her death.The two have run into each other by chance a few times, and each time left Kanzo with an uncomfortable feeling. Every clue that is revealed seems to lead to more questions.
From 2002 - it is quite an interesting if not riveting drama. Detective Kanzo is much like Lt. Columbo. Takuya Kimura plays the oh-so-cool suspect. He speaks in the lowest of tones, and women are drawn to him like magnets.
Eri Fukatsu and Shou Shibasaki are the women that command our attention.
It's eerie, and mysterious, and well worth your time.
