Just finished watching the Hiroshi Abe movie KIRIN NO TSUBASA (The Wings of the Gryphon), a crime drama that I originally grabbed becasue I mistakenly thought it was a Yui Aragaki Movie. Aragaki IS in the movie, but she was more part of an (admittedly stellar) ensemble cast than a starring role, but it didn't even matter because I was captivated thoughout the movie anyway! If there's one thing that's been proven, when times are tough and things seem hopeless, Hiroshi Abe is THE MAN when it comes to cracking the cases and bringing the guilty to justice!

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

"If you see the world smile to you, you'll be all right. There's no use to stay in the dark and lose faith."


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 …
