Nishi, feeling guilt over his partner's accident, tries to help him in any way he can. At the same time, Nishi leaves the police force to spend more time with his dying wife. However, in order to do the right things for those he loves, Nishi must do wrong things.

Elokuvapäiväkirja 2018 (556 movies items)

"Moni varmaan katsoo tämänkin vain viihteellisenä rikosleffana, mutta oikeasti kyseessä on Kitonan semi-omaelämänkerrallinen tilitys kuoleman kohtaamisen ja elämän lyhyyden ymmärtämisen vaikutuksesta ihmiseen. Elokuvan Kitano ja toisen näyttelijän taiteilija edustavat tosielämän Kitanoa, joka joutui muutamaa vuotta aiemmin vakavaan onnettomuuteen, joka muutti lopulta miehen maailmankuvan täysin. Tästä voi löytää myös paljon kaikuja Japanin 90-luvun alun lamasta. Pelkästää"

"1.3 Parhaimpia aasialaisia elokuvia mitä olen nähnyt ja rikosdraamana poikkeaa selvästi massasta. Dialogia on lähes minimaalisesti ja puhe onkin korvattu pitkälti rentouttavalla ja melankolisella uusklassisella. Katsoja saa siis itse tulkita mitä roolihahmojen ajatuksissa oikein liikkuu. Hidastempoisesta ja rauhallisesti etenevästä tahdista nauttii parhaiten, kun katsoja onnistuu samaistumaan elokuvan roolihahmoihin. Kaunis, rujon väkivaltainen ja myös hauska elokuva, joka kaikki pyö"

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (1990's) (124 movies items)

" Notes: To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Basically, back in the 90’s, I used to be a massive fan of Takeshi Kitano’s work (he was probably one of the best directors at work at the time) and I managed to watch most of his movies. This feature was probably his most acclaimed directing effort (it even won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival) so I had some rather high expectations before watching the damned"
