The Most Terrible Time In My Life
Detective Maiku "Mike" Hama (Masatoshi Nagase; Mystery Train) navigates the Yokohama underworld with razor sharp threads, Belmondo cool and two-fisted street savvy. But when he comes to the aid of a Taiwanese waiter at a local mah-jongg parlor, the unflappable Hama has no idea what he's in for. Though seemingly a luckless immigrant teetering on the threshold of Yokohama's gutter, Hama's Taiwanese client holds the secret to a ferocious gangland revenge triangle that soon has bullets, fists and several fingers flying. Hama's plunge into a dizzyingly escalating, brutally violent multiethnic gang war ultimately snares him in a web of revenge and deceit that spans continents and severs bloodlines.

The Stairway To The Distant Past
"I get 50,000 Yen a day, plus expenses," growls tough-talking detective Maiku "Mike" Hama (Masatoshi Nagase) in Stairway to the Distant Past, the second part of director Kaizo Hayashi's stylish modern-day Japanese film noir trilogy. Picking up where The most terrible time in my life left off, Stairway delivers a knockout combination of widescreen color visuals and savvy pulp storytelling more luridly violent, outrageously ironic and sincerely affecting than its predecessor.

Broke, his vintage Nash convertible repossessed, private eye Mike Hama is reduced to combing the mean streets of the Yokohama waterfront on a borrowed bicycle. But when Lily, a beautiful stripper from out of Hama's past, returns to town, the fuse is lit on a criminal powder keg set to blow the lid off the Yokohama underworld. Hama's search for his long lost parents soon has him up to his neck in a simmering conspiracy pitting corrupt politicians, local Yakuza gangsters and the Taiwanese mafia against the mysterious "Man in White." Forced to admit the truth of his past to both himself and his plucky kid sister, Hama now must discover whether private eyes are born or made - if he can just keep from getting killed first.

The Trap
In love for the first time, cases booked solidly for months and a brand new fax machine prodding his office into the nineties, down-on-his-luck private eye Maiku "Mike" Hama has the world on a string at last. Or does he? IN The Trap, things are not what they seem. When a hooded stranger appears in his office with the cryptic challenge "I want you to look for me," Hama is drawn into a string of bizarre serial murders that have Yokohama's police baffled and the city terrified.

Though decorated with the same retro film noir gloss as The most terrible time in my life and The stairway to the distant past, this third chapter in writer-director Kaizo Hayashi's cult trilogy of hardboiled stories form the case files of Yokohama's smoothest private eye is by far the darkest. The Trap transforms from a playful pulp detective story into a modern nightmare as corpses of waterfront bar girls pile up and faked evidence fingers Hama as the killer. Stalked by a psychopath, chased by the cops and haunted by his mute girlfriend's mysterious past, every step Hama takes towards solving The Trap's gruesome mystery pushes him, and everyone around him, deeper into danger.
