"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"

" 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"
