While Japanese action-thrillers are usually synonymous with gore and violence, this one manages to add a tinge of humour and intelligent twists that enable it to make this list. Based on a novel by Naomi Azuma, this revenge story has managed to create as much stir in Japan and in the international festival circuit that a sequel is actually being considered. Essentially a detective story, the humour element in the film gives it a refreshing take and makes for a pleasant watch.
