| Yakuza On Foot...
A small time yakuza boss and two of his brothers travel to bustling Hong Kong where the lively threesome soon get caught up in a tangled international web of hard drugs and the exploitation of young women. Director Jun'ya Satô throws everything into this very entertaining classic film. Starting out in a somewhat silly and playful mood the film's comedy soon dissolves when our protagonists enter the sordid world of heroin trafficking and prostitution. As the deaths mount and anguish grows the tone darkens dramatically, violent action erupts, machine guns blaze. The twisting tale is beautifully filmed capturing the magnificent on location on harbour scenery of Hong Kong and Macao. All of the characters are excellent but it is Tomisaburô Wakayama who really highlights the film as Shimamura gang boss. An exceptionally talented actor, always a commanding performance and also a master comic. We laughed so much early on, the belly button scene is one to never forget !. For lovers of Classic Japanese film this little seen gem now has an image here and brief review and is Highly Recommended...
