Cast & Credits
Anyway as a fan of thriller and suspence, i can say it is a good movie. The action is not satisfied me, but story is definitely good. Because the series Based on Tetsuya Honda's detective novel "Strawberry Night" (first published by Kobunsha onFebruary 25, 2006) (According to Asian Wiki)
One of the weak part of the movie is Reiko's character. i found Takeuchi Yuko acting a little bit forced. Especially when she thinks something serious or feel under pressure, she plays with her hair. But it looked unnatural at some point for me. But her manly acts was fine and you can feel the pressure on being a woman at a police station.
Musics are fine too. There is no song stunning for me in the movie but you can keep up the atmosphere.
Note:i'm not a rewatcher so i just gave fair point so you guys decide it :)
