KEY OF LIFE 鍵泥棒のメソッド

Directed by UCHIDA Kenji (2012, 128 min.)

Kenji Uchida‘s screwball comedy about a failed actor who switches identities with a stranger in bath house accident — only to find himself filling the shoes of a ruthless underworld assassin.

The killer, suffering amnesia from the encounter, applies himself to learning the actor’s method. Touching, brilliantly plotted and simply hilarious, Key of Life was named one of the best 10 films of the year by The Japan Times and Kinema Jumpo, winner of the best screenplay at the Shanghai International Film Festival.

Starring: Masato Sakai, Teruyuki Kagawa, Ryoko Hirosu
