Movie Info

The unlucky private detective, Mike Hama, again treads the gray streets of Yokohama in this sequel to The Most Terrible Time in My Life. The adventure begins in Maiku Hama's office, located above a run-down cinema that is so desperate for cash, they charge admission to Hama's potential clients. For this case, the clumsy and nattily dressed detective begins investigating the true identity of the enigmatic crimelord of the waterfront, the White Man. He must also deal with the sudden reappearance of his estranged mother who abandoned him and his sister many years before. She works as a stripper and bills herself as Dynamite Sexy Lily. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Hayashi's jazzy style is at once both playful and serious, full of comic wit and lighthearted character comedy...

Audience Reviews for Harukana jidai no kaidan o (Stairway to the Distant Past)

½

This is the second film in Director Kaizo Hayashi series of Mike Hama film's released by Kino Video, and unlike most sequels it is just as good if not better then the first movie The Most Terrible Time in My Life . These films have both some slap stick comedy and so real drama. this one has a little more drama. You will have to read English Subtitles. And hopefully the third film will pickup where this one let off. If you have not rented a Kino Video give them a try you will not regret World Cinema. 4 ½ stars.
