January 1964. After seventy eight bloodstained days on the run, serial killer Iwao Enokizu is arrested. What really happened?

After the box office failure of The Profound Desire of the Gods, Shōhei Imamura went through a ten year dry spell, that ended only with the release of the much acclaimed Vengeance is Mine. Like an anthropologist, he adapts Ryuzo Saki's sensational novel relating the life of a serial killer who terrorized Japan for two months. Using no effects, deconstructing narration to better disconcert viewers, Imamura reconnects with success and wins all major Japanese awards that year.
