responsibility for this!

Sory, sir!

Please forgive me with this.

The Mafiia is harassing us.

Should we give them a share?

They're demanding half,

aren't they?

Well? Sugimoto?

20% is the limit.

We got your woman.

Come to the Sixth Street Bridge.

Come alone.

Where is he going?

Home, I guess.

Shouldn't you take him home?

He doesn't want me

to know where he lives.

Ah. That's playing it safe, huh?

Isn't Aniki coming?

No. He's got something

to take care of.


You know, he should be paying

more attention to the family business.

Hey, the Mafia says

20% is not acceptable.

- They want 50%.

- Well, f*** them.

What shall we do?

It's war.

F*** with the Italians,

we'll be askin' for trouble.

Yeah. We'll all die.

I'm a yakuza

from the old school.

If I have to die, so be it.


- Bring him over here.

- Yes, sir.

Who sent you?

Which family?


Are you okay?

You don't look so good, man.

You gonna eat?

Where to?

Here. Eat it.


All right.

So, it's war.

Hey, boys.

Here's to the boss.

- Here.

- Thank you.

We just killed Geppetti,

so it's war.

You better be ready.

The Mafiia will

torture you to death.

If you get caught...

take one of these.

You'll die quickly, without pain.


You and l,

we don't need this sh*t, right?

It's over.

We'll all die.

What a terrible thing to do.

Clean it up.

Yes, sir.


We are going to avenge

Aniki's death.

Don't even think about running.

- Denny, give me my 9-millimeter!

- Okay, buddy, let's go.

Colin. Colin!

So he's dead.

Let's go.

Takeshi Kitano

Takeshi Kitano (北野 武, Kitano Takeshi, born 18 January 1947) is a Japanese comedian, television personality, director, actor, author, and screenwriter. While he is known primarily as a comedian and TV host in his native Japan, abroad he is known almost entirely for his filmwork. With the exception of his works as a film director, he is known almost exclusively by the stage name Beat Takeshi (ビートたけし, Bīto Takeshi). Kitano rose to prominence in the 1970s as one half of the comedy duo Two Beat, before going solo and becoming one of the three biggest comedians in the country. After several small acting roles, he made his directorial debut with 1989's Violent Cop and garnered international acclaim for Sonatine (1993). But he was not accepted as a director in Japan until Hana-bi won the Golden Lion in 1997. In October 2017, Kitano's completed his Outrage crime trilogy with the release of Outrage Coda.He has received critical acclaim for his idiosyncratic cinematic work, winning numerous awards with Japanese film critic Nagaharu Yodogawa having once dubbed him "the true successor" to influential filmmaker Akira Kurosawa. Many of Kitano's films are dramas about yakuza gangsters or the police. Described by critics as using an acting style that is highly deadpan or a camera style that approaches near-stasis, Kitano often uses long takes where little appears to be happening, or editing that cuts immediately to the aftermath of an event. Many of his films express a bleak worldview, but are also filled with humor and affection for their characters. more…
