Tsumetai Chi

Shinji Aoyama (Two Punks) directed this Japanese cop drama about assistant police inspector Saga (Ryo Ishibashi), who is guarding a religious cult leader when the man is shot and killed. In pursuit of the hitman (Yu-rei Yanagi), Saga is also shot, and he's only half-conscious when his gun is stolen. At the hospital, his wife Rie (Eiko Nagashima) begins planning a divorce. Low on self-esteem, Saga resigns from the force. Saga's stolen gun is later determined to be a weapon used in a murder. Hypnosis sends Saga to terminal leukemia patient Shimano (Kazuma Suzuki), who's taking stolen morphine, and the trail then leads to Shimano's ex-lover Kimiko Endo (Kyoko Tohyama). Shown at the 1997 Turin Film Festival.
