Storyline

A cop, a sanitation worker and a pharmacist intersect on a late bus ride that's hijacked by a suicidal political flunky. Shingo is a miserable young desk cop bucking for homicide division. Tetsu is a restroom cleaning attendant who has a mentally ill father and a penchant for mischief. And Saki is a petulant druggist/chemist who was born with one eye and keeps her disfigurement hidden behind shades. Months after the hijacking, the trio reintertwine as they playfully seek revenge for their unhappy lives, until the games become deadly serious. Written by Martin Lewison <dr@martinlewison.com>

Shocking drama with a bit comedy here and there
30 August 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This was such a beautiful drama. Kuriyama (Kill Bill vol. 1 & Battle Royale) did a great job as a blind person and the other two actors were also outstanding. I loved the relationship between the three people in the group. They weren't really connected, but because they spend a lot of time with each other, they kind of created their own ordinary relationship.

This movie really interested me, and it's not a typical movie you can find anywhere. There were quite some memorable scenes! There weren't really that much lines in the movie, but even without saying anything, you can just look threw the heart of the characters. I love this movie!
