Vengeance Is Mine 復讐するは我にあり
Vengeance Is Mine (1979)
The filmmaker Shohei Imamura (1926-2006) loved to investigate. With cold distance, a lucid detachment worthy of a documentary, he examines the inconsistencies of a notorious criminal, the author of a crime that made the front page of newspapers in 1964, the year of the Olympics in Tokyo. Violence is brought to its height by the superb actor Ken Ogata (1937-2008).
