SIX FOUR: Part 1 / Part 2

  • Dir: Zeze Takahisa

  • Japan, 2016, 236min

  • Cast: Sato Koichi, Ayano Go, Eikura Nana, Eita

When a girl is kidnapped, the citizens of Gunma Prefecture must revisit a terrible unsolved case in the gripping mystery-thriller Six Four . The year is 2003 and police PR officer Mikami (Sato Koichi) finds himself drawn to his earlier role in 1989, when he was a detective assigned to the notorious “Six-Four” case. Back then, the young daughter of Amamiya Yoshio (Nagase Masatoshi) was kidnapped and murdered, but the ransom was paid and the kidnapper never caught. Now, right before the 15- year Statute of Limitations is set to pass, a new kidnapping occurs that bears eerie resemblance to “Six-Four.” More than just a thriller, this epic drama is a richly-detailed police procedural and a stunning psychological portrait of a community haunted by a horrifying and unspeakable crime.
