Movie Reviews

The Case of the MIssing Husband
vanhubris | Verona Beach, NY | 07/11/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a pretty good movie--filmed in a style similar to "Under the Flag of the Rising Sun"
Newlyweds- Teiko and Kenichi--are married for a week when Kenichi disappears without a trace-and we are shown Teiko's attempts to discover what happened and how.
She finds that her husband was an ex-policeman involved with prostitutes-is there a connection to this and his disappearance?
Soon her brother-in-law is poisoned--and another young woman commits suicide--apparently, after the suicide of her common law husband. Through a maze of false leads and disinformation-Teiko finally discovers what happened to her husband and how!
A very good mystery--my only complaint being that some of the transitions between scenes are a little too abrupt. All in all---a very good movie--well worth watching! Yoshiko Kuga does an excellent job as the abandoned wife!
Black & White--with sub-titles!"
Wonderfully gripping suspense drama

"Nicely acted, beautifully shot, intense drama. Brilliantly brings to life Seicho Matsumoto's story in true Hitchcockian style. Never a false step."
