This is taken from my initial 2007 review of the Region 2 DVD for chud.com. The original formatting can be found here http://www.chud.com/13679/dvd-review-vengeance-is-mine-region-2/

Between October and December of 1963 a serial killer claimed five victims throughout Japan. These crimes would shock a nation and would ultimately inspire the book and subsequent film Vengeance is Mine.... read more

Great. Thriller, essay on assasination as a fascination. I love the encounter between Ogata and the old lady killer. Complete amorality is impossible, Iwao (great Ogata) has his affective and moving limits.

Miika's Movie Diary - 2017 (215 movies items)

"19.7, PC Kerronta on reilun kahden ja puolen tunnin elokuvaksi kyllä ihan hyvin tahditettu, vaikka välillä tämä tuntuu turhanpäiväiseltä jaarittelulta. Täytyy kuitenkin sanoa, että päähenkilön ja tämän isän välinen suhde oli varsin hyvin kuvattu. Uskon, että toisenlaisessa mielentilassa tämä olisi toiminut paremmin ja koen että paljon tästä jäi vielä avautumatta, mutta nyt Vengeance Is Mine tuntui turhan raskaalta tähän hetkeen."

"What are the motives this serial killer has to kill? This one is written and constructed in a marvellous way "
