TV movie
Don't ask me of all DVDs how this fell on my lap (a buddy had ordered it from Asia etc etcetra bla) and so we watched it It is a fairly linear crime movie with not so bad an acting, but the coincidences pile up. It is interesting because the novelist has a super cute assistant (I would have done her fast) but I guess he is too old to get it on. Also she is trying to be unattractive by having short hair and stuff. They meet a woman on the other side of the country (this one is a hostess so to attract men has long hair, which she later cuts when she quits her job) who is being squeezed for cash and her body (nice thin girl too).

It is almost like amateur sleuth hour with a couple of thin pretty women who get short hair for the movie to not be so attractive.

The twist here is there is a Japanese politician involved.
