"A wave of gruesome murders is sweeping Tokyo. The only connection is a bloody X carved into the neck of each of the victims. In each case, the murderer is found near the victim and remembers nothing of the crime. Detective Takabe and psychologist Sakuma are called in to figure out the connection, but their investigation goes nowhere. An odd young man is arrested near the scene of the latest murder, who has a strange effect on everyone who comes into contact with him. Detective Takabe starts a series of interrogations to determine the man's connection with the killings."--IMDb summary

Sonachine Sonatine by Bīto Takeshi( visu )
6 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in Japanese and held by 24 libraries worldwide
One of worlds cinema's most consistently interesting directors, Kitano Takeshi has the uncanny knack of being able to repeat himself without becoming tiresome. The lean and absorbing Sonatine, the filmmaker's fourth feature, bears all the trappings of a typical Kitano gangster flick: an impassive antihero, slapstick comedy, stylish mayhem, and an undercurrent of sadness. Sonatine is a strange hybrid, wedging the aimless story of a beach idyll into a straightforward genre picture. With his weathered face and unimposing slouch, Kitano is an unlikely candidate to play a cool antihero. But as with most of his movies, tight-lipped stoisism and coiled viciousness go a long way. Formally, the picture is as strong as anything Kitano has done. The stark and static compostions have cumulative power, creating a meditative mood thats almost alien to the genre. For all its deviations from the generic norm, the movie doesn't really tell us anything new; it's the telling that makes the movie worth watching. Familiar by Kitano's standards, Sonatine never fails to surprise anyway, a testament to the peculiarity of his vision.--Insert
