Nobuhiro YAMASHITA 山下敦弘

The Matsugane Potshot Affair

Nippon Cinema   ª 

A dead woman on the street of the dead-end hick village of Matsugane. While policeman Kôtarô tries to unravel the mystery, his family is on his back and seems somehow mixed up with the incident... YAMASHITA's trademark black humor goes one shade darker in this wonderfully painful crime story.
