you're a fan of Japanese thrillers, then you will want to put Kiyoshi
(2016) on your radar. Similar in some ways to The
here we find a couple weirded out by their odd neighbor who is
seemingly up to no good. The filmmaking is interesting here, as are
the performances. It wouldn't surprise me to see an American remake
of this in the near future.
film stars Hidetoshi Nishijima, Teruyuki Kagawa, Yuko Takeuchi, and
detective, Takakura, now works as a Professor of Criminal Psychology
at a university. An ex-colleague requests his assistance on an
unsolved six-year old case involving a missing family. Meanwhile,
Takakura and his wife Yasuko move into a new neighborhood. One of
their neighbors, Nishino, has a sick wife and a young daughter, Mio.
While on one hand Takakura is solving the missing family case, events
in his neighborhood get ''creepy'' when a secret is unearthed by Mio
that shakes things up. As the past and present collide, Takakura is
not just solving a case anymore.
in standard definition with a 1.78:1 widescreen aspect ratio and a
nice sounding, if lossy Japanese Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo audio track
with English subtitles, the film looks and sounds as good in the
format as it can. The only extra is a Trailer.
