Storyline

When three murders occur in Tokyo, aside from the corpse and the crime, the commonality is the placement of numbers next to scene of crime. As such, the lead investigator pieces together enough clues to assume the scene of the next murder. He goes undercover and presents himself at an employee of the hotel. The present hotel employee is placed in charge of the detective's training, but it is clear that they have different priorities. In the meantime, there is a potential crime to prevent and criminal to apprehend. Written by aghaemi

Male lead looks young at 46
10 September 2019 | by madbird-61243See all my reviews

The movie itself is not very captivating, given that the story just develops within a hotel. The female lead is ok. But with the evergreen male lead the whole movie is lightened.
