Renowned actor Koji Yakusho (SHALL WE DANCE, THE EMPEROR IN AUGUST, SEKIGAHARA, to name a few) returns with one of the best performances of the year in Kazuya Shiraishi’s (TWISTED JUSTICE, BIRDS WITHOUT NAMES) gangster crime drama THE BLOOD OF WOLVES.
Its 1988 Hiroshima, and tough guy cop Ogami (Yakusho) has a unique way of managing the local yakuza. Skirting the line of legality and morality, he maintains the peace by maintaining an ‘in’ with the local syndicates. Straight-laced and by-the-book rookie cop Hioka (Tori Matsuzaka) is dismayed at Ogami’s actions when he is assigned to be his partner, viewing Ogami as a corrupt cop in action. But when a local financial company worker goes missing, the mismatched duo must bridge the divide between them to solve the case.
As the plot thickens, and a brewing war between the local syndicates becomes apparent, Hioka begins to question whether Ogami might not be the corrupt cop he seems to be after all… A fresh take on the ‘gangster’ genre, THE BLOOD OF WOLVES is one of the best yakuza crime dramas in recent years, cementing Kazuya Shiraishi as a rising star in Japanese cinema.
