I’m back to writing reviews, and the first one up for this month is of the movie Strawberry Night for Drama-MAX.
Based on the detective novel Invisible Rain by Tetsuya Honda, Strawberry Night brings Assistant Inspector Reiko Himekawa (Yuko Takeuchi) and the Tenth Homicide Section from television to the silver screen. Her team begins to investigate the gruesome murder of a gangster, only to be pulled off the case by her superiors. However, following a tip that connects the murder to a previous case– the name, Kento Yanai– Himekawa is too personally invested to quit. In fact, she becomes entangled in both police and yakuza politics at the risk of her job, her life, and even her heart.
