Storyline

The story opens after a young female student kills herself by jumping off a balcony. It's soon discovered that she was in fact stabbed, and the room arranged to make it look like a suicide. And so we begin. A few minor details lead Detective Kanzo to suspect that Ryo, an enigmatic chef's assistant, knows more about her death.The two have run into each other by chance a few times, and each time left Kanzo with an uncomfortable feeling. Every clue that is revealed seems to lead to more questions about Ryo, his obsessive girlfriend, his callous and manipulative relations with several women, and about a painful memory from Kanzo's past. Things get more complicated when a powerful love/hate relationship develops between Ryo and Kanza's little sister, the beautiful Yuko. What exactly is their connection? As the evidence (and body count) rises, Kanza tries desperately to save his sister from Ryo's influence. He's no saint, but is he the Devil Kanza thinks he is? And why? The answers will ...

aka A Million Stars Fall from the Sky
21 April 2008 | by mdaviswsfblSee all my reviews

The story opens after a young female student kills herself by jumping off a balcony. And so we begin. A few minor details lead Detective Kanzo (Akashiya Sanma) to suspect that Ryo (Kimura Takuya), an enigmatic chef's assistant, knows more about her death.The two have run into each other by chance a few times, and each time left Kanzo with an uncomfortable feeling. Every clue that is revealed seems to lead to more questions.

From 2002 - it is quite an interesting if not riveting drama. Detective Kanzo is much like Lt. Columbo. Takuya Kimura plays the oh-so-cool suspect. He speaks in the lowest of tones, and women are drawn to him like magnets.

Eri Fukatsu and Shou Shibasaki are the women that command our attention.

It's eerie, and mysterious, and well worth your time.
