Two lovers go on the run from their past in Keibetsu, the latest film from director Hiroki Ryuichi (Vibrator). Based on author Nakagami Kenji’s final novel before his death in 1992, this romance noir is an intense character drama about two outcasts trying to find a place to belong, only to face obstacles every step of the way. Suzuki Anne (Hana and Alice) gives the breakthrough performance of her career, playing an exotic dancer who elopes with a young gambler, played by Kora Kengo (M, Into the White Night). Returning to a darker realm after a string of gentle, low-key dramas, Hiroki depicts a fiery, passionate romance about two people who can only rely on each other in a cold, violent world.
