Vengeance Is Mine

Fukushû suruwa wareniari

Directed by Shôhei Imamura
Japan, 1979
Crime, Drama


A thief, murderer, and charming lady-killer, Iwao Enokizu (Ken Ogata) is on the run from the police. Director Shohei Imamura turns this fact-based story, of his seventy-eight-day killing spree into a cold, perverse, and diabolically funny tale of the primitive coexisting with the modern.
