Inochi Bonifuro Details


This black-and-white crime drama takes place in a remote rural inn located on an island in a river. It is the headquarters for a smuggling gang and is protected by higher-ups in the government. Even with this protection, the police continue their efforts to put the gang away. Things begin to unravel for the gang as they try to raise money to buy out the prostitution contract of a woman one of them has fallen in love with. Told with lots of flashbacks detailing the life histories of those involved, this Japanese language film has English subtitles. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
