The Mole Song - Undercover Agent Reiji

de Takashi Miike

Synopsis

Reiji is the worst cop in the academy. Fired for being useless, he will soon be reinstated with orders to infiltrate a Yakuza clan. The indefatigable Miike made good use of a manga with more than thirty volumes to do what he knows best and, lately, likes the most: create a cartoonesque image with characters sporting impossible hairstyles and attire, in a mix of zany comedy and flat out action.
