“A thriller flush with needle-spiking tensions and bullet-train exhilarations.”
—Chuck Stephens

Based on an American crime novel, HIGH AND LOW stars Toshiro Mifune as an intensely driven industrial executive whose ambitious plans are derailed by a kidnapping plot. The second half of the film is a rivetingly tense police procedural and criminal pursuit wrapped up in human drama. In 35mm
