“Old school yakuza thrills are back” – Japan Times

It is 1988 and Hiroshima detective Ogami is an old school cop notorious for cutting deals with yakuza to solve cases. His partner, rookie cop Hioka disagrees with his methods. Investigating a simple kidnapping, Ogami drags him along a trail of pachinko bars, yakuza lairs, and brothels, where they discover that a war is brewing amongst the yakuza. The Hiroshima underworld is about to explode and Ogami could be the only one skilled enough to diffuse it.

Stylish, fast-paced and hyper-violent, Wolves was nominated for 12 Japanese Academy Awards including Best Film, Actor and Director. Winner of the Hochi Film Award – Best Picture.
