A must watch - one of the best modern day Japanese flicks
G@me was not really known about outside Japan when it came out but I happened to have had the privilege of watching it on a Virgin Atlantic air flight from UK to Hong Kong.
The story line is written to perfection, the plot being measured intricately all the way through. A very intelligent film.
The movie centres around Sakuma (played by the handsome Fujiki Naohito) who works as an advertiser / commercial promoter. Due to the cancellation of a project he has worked hard on by his boss Katsuragi (played by the ruthless Ryo Ishibashi), Sakuma enters into an agreement with Katsuragi's daughter, Chiharu (played by the beautiful Nakama Yuki) that she should be kidnapped as a ransom for her father's money. In performing the kidnap, Sakuma and Chiharu fall in love although there are scenes when both try to be as objective and unemotional as possible.
Worth all your time and watch and one hopes to see Fujiki and Nakama come on screen together in the near future.
