The story of a man who never forgot a case of murder and rape and ends up undercovering a terrible secret, a perfect revenge. Great direction that created a fine noir atmosphere and some memorable scenes, like the man chase at the stadium [link]

Boooring film. It has nothing to do with Kitano Takeshi's "Zatoichi". Too bad, because Katori Shingo is a good actor but in this film was totally idle [link]
