SUPAI NO TSUMA
Japan | 2020 | Kiyoshi Kurosawa
In this elegant WWII-era period piece and Hitchcockian thriller, a Japanese merchant travels to Nippon-occupied 1940 Manchuria, where he documents evidence of Japanese atrocities against the Chinese. His activities and ties to the West cause the nationalistic military police, and even his wife, to question his loyalties. The mysterious murder of an associate doesn’t help his case. From the director of Cure. “Critic’s Pick…Linear narrative perfection, with every scene perfectly calibrated.” –NY Times. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. 115 mins.
