Movie Info

An ordinary man is suddenly suspected of plotting a high-tech political assassination in this suspense thriller from Japan. Aoyaga (Masato Sakai) is a deliveryman making his rounds one morning when a motorcade passes by, dominated by a limousine carrying Japan's newly elected prime minister. A moment later all is chaos when a bomb attached to a miniature helicopter swoops in and explodes, killing the new leader. A friend warns Aoyaga that being so close to the assassination will cause him trouble, and sure enough Aoyaga becomes the prime suspect in the killing and is on the run from the law as he tries to find a way to prove his innocence. While his former love Haruko (Yuko Takeuchi) and a handful of friends try to help Aoyaga stay free and prove he's not the assassin, it's harder than he expects, and the presence of a fugitive murderer in the neighborhood isn't helping. Goruden Suramba (aka Golden Slumber) was an official selection at the 2010 Berlin International Film Festival.

Audience Reviews for Gôruden suranbâ (Golden Slumber)

this film is about undying friendship, even in the toughest of situations; that even when you've been framed for assassinating the Prime Minister of Japan, your friends will still be there to help. this is a dark comedy thriller (but not pitch black) about that very, previously mentioned, subject. it is very suspenseful and very funny at the same time, and one can only hope that they release it for a wide theatrical release in America, because I think its the kind of movie people would love (despite its overlong length). the story is great and the little twists and turns that push it along help make this film a masterpiece. also, though its a comedy, the expressions presented by the characters (especially Akira Emoto's) make the film very human. if you are ever able to spot this film (at a theater or on DVD or the suchlike) I highly recommend seeing it.
