(1958) Minoru Ôki, Takahiro Tamura, Seiji Miyaguchi, Hideko Takamine, Kin Sugai. Two Tokyo cops board a train. Their assignment is to find the escaped killer of a Tokyo jeweler. Their plan is to stakeout the killer’s former girlfriend in hopes that she will lead them to him. She is living a pedestrian life as a mother of three stepchildren. This is much more than your average crime movie. It explores the lives of its characters in a poignant, creative way not normally seen in films of this nature. A jazzy music score adds to the atmosphere. Subtitled in English. 35mm.
