A trailer for the highly anticipated film, A Mole’s Song has just been released online. Directed by Takashi Miike, the film centers on Reiji an undercover officer who has infiltrated an infamous yakuza organization. As he struggles to maintain his cover and his own well being, he encounters a bevy of odd characters with the capacity to expose him. With what looks like a ton of visual panache, I could see this being more inline with Miike’s Dead or Alive series, but he seems in recent years, willing to tone down his onscreen madness for more sensible storytelling. Look for the film to hit Japanese cinemas next February.
Starring: Toma Ikuta, Riisa Naka, Shinichi Tsutsumi, Takayuki Yamada, Takashi Okamura, Yusuke Kamiji, Mitsuru Fukikoshi, Sarutoki Minagawa, Koichi Iwaki, Ren Osugi
