"Matka Imamuran ihmeellisessä maailmassa jatkuu, tällä kertaa sarjamurhaajan mukana. Alan todella rakastaa Shohei-sedän kieroutuneita elokuvia."

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. Starting with the capture of the killer, Iwao Enokizu (Ken Ogata), the film delves into his family history in an attempt to understand what motivated his crimes.

Vengeance is Mine is a hard film to gauge, part social drama, part thriller, it is impossible to classify exactly what genre it fits into. Certainly there are the tropes of serial killer movies to be found in the film, witnesses ar” read more

"Directed by Shohei Imamura. Vengeance. I'd like to get a perfect elucidation for that word from the writer of the book (Ryuzo Saki) or Imamura. What has vengeance anything to do with Iwao Enokizu or Akira Nishiguchi (original name of the murderer is Akira Nishiguchi, but Imamura replaced that with Enokizu)? No matter if the motivation was vengeance or just to have pure fun, I really enjoyed this movie. Movie begins with showing the conclusion of Enokizu and goes back to show the people how Enoki"

"18.8. Blu-ray Huomio! Saattaa sisältää pienoisia spoilereita, mm. loppuratkaisun. Shohei Imamuran ura elokuvaohjaajana alkoi hyvinkin samalla tavalla, kuin monella aikalaisella ohjaajalla Japanissa: työskentelemällä pienemmissä hommissa suuremmalle nimelle. Imamuralle tämä suuri nimi ja esikuva oli Yasujiro Ozu, aikansa arvostetuin japanilaisohjaaja. Imamura oli työstämässä Ozun töistä niin Early Summeria, The Flavor of Green Tea over Ricea ja Tokyo Storya. Imamuraan ei kuitenka"
