In this cool, seductive jewel of the Japanese New Wave, a yakuza, fresh out of prison, becomes entangled with a beautiful yet enigmatic gambling addict; what at first seems a redemptive relationship ends up leading him further down the criminal path. Bewitchingly shot and edited and laced with a fever-dream-like score by Toru Takemitsu (Woman in the Dunes, Ran), this breakthrough gangster romance from Masahiro Shinoda (SAMURAI SPY, DOUBLE SUICIDE) announced an idiosyncratic major filmmaking talent. The pitch-black PALE FLOWER (KAWAITA HANA) is an unforgettable excursion into the underworld.
