SHORT TAKES

Yogisha X no Kenshin


Director: Hiroshi Nishitani

News photo

Language: Japanese

Genius mathematician Ishigami (Shinichi Tsutsumi) helps a woman (Yasuko Matsuyuki) he secretly loves to cover up a crime she has committed. The math wizard comes up with a plan that nobody but physicist Yukawa (Masaharu Fukuyama) can solve. The film is a battle of brains between the pair and has enough tension and suspense to make it an engaging movie. As for acting, Fukuyama disappoints, but Tsutumi's intense moodiness impresses. The film is based on Keigo Higashino's best-selling suspense novel.
