In 1945, Japan surrendered to the United States and the Second World War was over. Right? Wrong. For eighty percent of the Japanese community in Brazil, Japan had won the war and defeat was nothing more than American propaganda. The few immigrants that accepted the truth were persecuted. Some were hunted down and assassinated - by their own countrymen - causing the start of a new, private war. Dirty Hearts is a thriller and love story told by the wife of one of the fanatics dedicated to preach Japanese victory. Little by little, she watches her husband, a hard-working immigrant, become an assassin and their love story fade away.Written by

Great novel compressed in few characters!!
Who read the book like me had thrilled when the movie come out, l got my Blu-ray copy in stand by for while expecting the right moment to enjoy the so awaited picture, unfortunately the whole project was flopped in a brief concept to save money driving force in a few characters imported from Japan, bad adaptation for so powerful real facts, the picture survives in agony, the director's maybe was more interested in japanese's maked than never, forgeting that story concern with Brazilian matter cos they were Brazilians at those time, a lack of all this could explains two reviews only!!!
First watch: 2018 / How many: 1 / Source: Blu-ray / Rating: 7
