Movie Info

In Japan, the gangsters wear tattoos. A lot of tattoos. In fact, without their clothes, it almost looks as if they are wearing a particularly tight-fitting, gaudy ensemble. When two brothers who want to quit the gangster life go to work in a mine, they are harassed by the other miners because their tattoos identify them as gangsters. When the younger brother is killed, the older one must avenge him. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Irezumi ichidai (Tattooed Life)


An entertaining but by-the-numbers yakuza action melodrama. From Quentin Tarantino to Jim Jarmusch, Suzuki's influence is undeniable. Not being one of his stronger movies, Tattooed Life still has plenty to offer in the sense of style which is enhanced by Suzuki's use of colors and marks his last "straight-laced" yakuza film made before Tokyo Drifter and Branded To Kill.
