    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. 4 years ago

    Resembled The Castle of Sand and Vengeance Is Mine greatly, I would guess this film served as an influence on both of them. Anyways, I though this was pretty decent piece, really enjoyed the serious buddhist undertones, eerie score and the acting (especially Mikuni). The ending was fantastic.

    However, I did find the three hour runtime to be a bit of a stretch, the police procedural in the third act was very unconvincing and there was just too much exposition. I guess the whole 'whodunit' genre really isn't for me, even though I fucking love mysteries.
    Still, it was much more fun to spend a saturday night watching this instead of attending my weekly book burning.
