Cast & Credits
Strangely enough, though I really enjoyed Abe's crime drama SHINZANMONO, I had no IDEA that The Wings Of The Gryphon was a movie featuring the characters from it! I simply thought Hiroshi Abe , Junpei Mizubata, etc, wre playing stereotypical crime drama roles that I've seen them play a hundred times before! You would have thought the characters NAMES would have tipped me off, but honestly, I didn't remember what any of them were! LOL
At first when I watched this movie, it's feels like I'm watching CSI series (^_^) The story is great, I love the suspense and investigation thing. And the plot! Gosh, I REALLY LOVE THAT TWISTED PLOT! I don't have any thought that the murder is … ok, ok, I won’t spoiled it (^_^) The act of each cast was great, especially Abe Hiroshi, we should not questioned his skill (^_^)
The time the truth revealed ... that's so sad and touching. I cried …
