Interesting, well-acted, and well-directed.
Probably one of the most original (not in terms of style but of its topic and tempo) and important Japanese films made in the last 20 years. Its DVD has not yet released in Japan, probably because it touches the dark side of the post-WWII Japan like Kamikaze soldiers, foreign workers in Japan, Japanese immigrants to Latin America, politics, etc, but it is really well-made film worth watching again and again. Performance of actors, especially Koji Yakusho, is great, and its action scenes are really as in tense as good Hollywood films of the kind. The director Masato Harada studied film in the US, and it really affects his viewpoint about Japan, which you can sense very much in this film.
