A fugitive from the past is a good title but also the original Japanese one: Straight of Hunger. Anyway a masterpiece of Japanese film history.
I was a bit sceptical to watch this three hour long noir at first, but got convinced quite early on. Good story, good actors, an experimental score by Tomita Isao and the eerieness of Tohoku all made this a very pleasant surprise. Uchida Tomu, you now have a new fan.
