A Fugitive from the Past

Kiga kaikyô

Directed by Tomu Uchida
Japan, 1965
Crime, Drama


Another bona fide masterpiece by Uchida in grainy black & white Cinemascope. Modernist detective epic about a robbery with murder during a destructive typhoon in 1947, and how the culprits are confronted with their past ten years later. Also a social investigation into post-war Japan.
