The Voice of Sin (罪の声), dir. Nobuhiro Doi, Japan 2020, 142 min., Japanese with English subtitles, 15
Eiji (Shun Oguri) is a determined newspaper reporter writing an investigative piece on a high-profile unsolved extortion case dating back over thirty years, involving the blackmailing of several confectionary companies by a gang of criminals. Meanwhile, a tailor living in Kyoto, Toshiya (Gen Hoshino), makes a strange discovery when going through the possessions of his late father: a cassette tape recording of his own childhood voice with a threatening message. Was he involved in the case? As both men try to solve their own mysteries, their paths soon cross and they face the surprising truth behind the crime.
Inspired by one of the biggest cold cases that shook Japan, this award-winning film, partially shot on location in the UK, boasts a stellar cast and is a real masterpiece of the kind rarely seen in recent years.
