Memoirs of a Murderer

The Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2018: Memoirs of a Murderer

9 Feb 2018

This screening is the UK premiere of Memoirs of a Murderer

When a legal loophole allows a string of unsolved brutal murders to pass the statute of limitations, a fame-hungry killer known as the Tokyo Strangler (Tatsuya Fujiwara) suddenly emerges in the public spotlight, announcing the release of his tell-all book confessing to the unsolved brutal murders committed decades ago.

Watching the media frenzy unfold is detective Makimura (Hideaki Ito), wracked by his failure to crack the case years ago. A series of lingering questions leads Makimura to delve deeper in search of closure. 

Yu Irie adapts Jung Byoung-Gil's gripping thriller Confession of Murder in this murder mystery, featuring more twisted turns than the original. A huge domestic box office hit, this thriller packs a punch and features an all-star cast.
