News & Interviews for Villain (Akunin)
Critic Reviews for Villain (Akunin)
Offers a bleak and rounded, if ultimately conservative, take on a criminal act and its impact on those involved.
Having stayed in Japan, I really enjoyed how the location shots capture the country and its people.
Fortunately, the performances make as big an impact as the sweeping seascapes and the lyrical score.
Villain is too long, with a propensity for cliché at vital moments, but its best parts are very good and Lee's direction makes the most of them.
Audience Reviews for Villain (Akunin)
Great performance from Mrs Fukatsu, fantastic direction, but the movie seems to exist mostly for the final sequence. I liked a lot the sub-story of the father of the victim. Flawed film, but with interesting touches.
