Harrowing post-war b/w photos of Hiroshima are the backcloth for the opening credits and we are soon introduced name by name to family members that will play a part in the early days of the yakuza. Seemingly one unforeseen aspect of the war was a lawless Tokyo but there were those who rushed in to fill the void and would expand further when the Korean war began a few years later. Bold use of widescreen (as many close-ups as distant - partly, I'm sure to cut down on cost of converting wide expanses of the city to a 40s/50s landscape) and wonderful colour and effective soundtrack help hold this somewhat desperate story together. Bright, brash, violent and bloody, this is also fast moving (a little too fast at times, for some of us) with a pause here and there only to discuss the next epode of mayhem.
