YesAsia Editorial Description

Legendary Japanese director Ichikawa Kon's 1976 film The Inugami Family, a.k.a. Inugamike no Ichizoku, holds a very special place in Japan's long tradition of supernatural suspense. Based on Yokomizo Seishi's epic work, the slow-burning family murder mystery is a highly influential title in the director's celebrated filmography and just about required viewing for Japanese cinema fans. In 2006, the 91-year-old auteur returned to the director's chair for what would be his last film to remake his own most representative work, updating the classic film for contemporary audiences. An uncannily faithful remake of the original film, the unsettling The Inugamis (a.k.a. Murder of the Inugami Clan) delves into a tangled web of murderous lies and deceptions that is tearing apart a wealthy multi-generation family. Ishizaka Koji, who also featured in the original Inugami Family, leads the all-star cast as the famous detective Kindaichi Kosuke.

When tycoon Inugami Sahei (Nakadai Tatsuya) passes away, he unexpectedly leaves the family fortune to outsider Tamayo (Matsushima Nanako, Ring) on the condition that she marry one of the Inugami grandsons - Sukekiyo (Onoe Kikunosuke, 47 Ronin), Suketake (Katsurayama Shingo), or Suketomo (Ikeuchi Mansaku) - pitting blood against blood. Soon afterwards, members of the family begin to turn up dead, one by one. Detective Kindaichi Kosuke (Ishizaka Koji) is called in to investigate the murders, and the truth is slowly revealed as he happens upon years of hidden skeletons and a shocking family secret.

    在世界捲起橫溝風潮的電影『犬神家一族』,經過三十年的醞釀,又將在大螢幕上復活。

    日本推理文壇的泰斗??溝正史的名作金田一偵探推理小?『犬神家一族』,市川崑導演重拍1976年的著名堆理電影。受到小說薰陶,擅長日本恐怖片的名製作人一?隆重與舊版導演兼演員的石?浩二,攜手探索犬神家一族秘辛。以松?菜菜子為首、尾上菊之助、深田恭子、松?慶子等演員共同飆戲!!

    1976年為了紀念角川映?而發行的第一彈問世,替日本電影界吹進一陣清新的『犬神家一族』。橫溝正史的名偵探推理小說的大書迷‧市川崑導演,將其絢爛的映像美及卓越的品味發揮得淋漓盡致。30年前公開播放的電影創下了15億6000萬日圓的紀錄,換算成現今的幣值相當於50億日圓的大熱賣票房,再日本娛樂電影史上寫下了輝煌的一頁。

    這回製作的新一代『犬神家一族』,是由犬神家巨額的遺產而引發的悽慘殺人事件為序幕,登場人物的多樣化和隨處可見的幽默則繼承了舊作的品味,以代表日本電影界的豪華眾星陣容為基礎,加上了規模提升的映像繪卷交織而成的大作。伴隨著連續殺人事件,複雜的愛恨交錯,人間的業,親子間的羈絆也一一浮現。超越了單純解題的日本電影成就,“究極的推理娛樂大作”再次誕生!

    名偵探金田一耕助在解開謎團的過程當中,也逐漸了解其背後隱藏的複雜人性。包括為人所背負的業障和悲哀、親子間的羈絆、以及男女間的愛恨情仇。除了金田一明快的解謎手法,潛藏在根源當中無法割捨之「愛恨情仇」也可說是『犬神一家』的魅力之一。

    劇情大綱:
    【犬神家一族】的故事主要是在敘述,信州(長野縣舊稱)的犬神財團創始人犬神佐兵衛(仲代達矢飾)辭世。代為保管遺囑的法律事務所職員若林,預測該份遺囑將會成為犬神家一族惡鬥的元兇,轉而委託偵探金田一耕助進行調查。然而若林卻在和金田一見面之前遇害。佐兵衛有三個同父異母的女兒松子(富司純子飾)、竹子(松?慶子飾)、梅子(萬田久子),她們還各自有名為佐清(尾上菊之助)、佐武(葛山信吾)、佐智(池內萬作)的兒子。除此之外犬神家的宅邸之中,還住著佐兵衛的恩人的孫女野野宮珠世(松?菜菜子)。終於,遠赴戰地的佐清戴著詭異的面具回到犬神家,說是在戰場上受傷破了相。直到佐清回來才公佈的遺囑,卻記載著「以和佐清、佐武、佐智其中一人完婚作為條件,將犬神家全數財產轉讓給珠世」這樣令人錯愕的內容。彷彿精心設計要讓家族陷入血洗鬥爭的這份遺囑,也使家族成員一陣嘩然。接著正如若林先前所擔心的,駭人的兇殺事件相繼發生。名偵探金田一耕助在追查犯人的推理過程中,解開了犬神家血脈族譜背後隱藏的謎團……!

    Professional Review of "The Inugamis (2006) (DVD) (2-Disc Deluxe Edition) (Taiwan Version)"

    December 1, 2008

    This professional review refers to Murder of the Inugami Clan (DVD) (English Subtitled) (Hong Kong Version)
    Director Kon Ichikawa's 2006 film The Inugamis is an odd production, as it appears to be just a reverent remake of the original 1976 film The Inugami Family that possesses little novelty besides an updated cast and a self-conscious affection for the original. In a rarity, Ichikawa remakes his own film; the veteran director handled the 1976 classic, and his reverent approach to the remake is a bit odd given the current vogue for director's cuts. Many directors consider rewriting history, looking for ways to tinker with their work instead of simply regurgitating it, but Ichikawa pretty much delivers a carbon copy of his original work. Is Ichikawa so happy with The Inugami Family that he doesn't feel the need to improve it in any way?

    One thing is certain: he didn't feel the need to improve upon his original actor. Koji Ishizaka reprises the central role of post-World War II detective Kosuke Kindaichi, a character he essayed numerous times throughout the seventies in many films also directed by Ichikawa. Ishizaka brings the same humble charm to the role, though he now has 30 years of lines and heft added to his body. Kindaichi is hired to investigate the rich Inugami family after the death of patriarch Sahei (Tatsuya Nakadai), but things get off to a bad start when Kindaichi spies the beautiful Tamayo (Nanako Matsushima) in a sinking boat in the middle of a lake. Kindaichi rescues her, but the implication is that someone connected to the Inugamis is out for Tamayo's blood. Soon after, the man who hired Kindaichi also dies from an apparent poisoning. Something is clearly rotten in the house of Inugami.

    The feeling goes from rotten to just plain murderous when Sahei's will is finally revealed. The will reading occurs at a family gathering, which includes not only Sahei's three daughters (all from different mothers), but also their children, including veteran Sukekiyo, who was disfigured in combat and wears an eerie white mask to hide his hideousness. His relatives suspect that he may not be the real Sukekiyo, but they have other problems, like the revelation that Tamayo is supposed to receive the entire Inugami fortune despite not being a blood-related family member. The deal is that she can share the fortune if she marries one of the Sahei's three grandsons - including the presumably undesirable Sukekiyo - but that option offers little immediate relief. As the family members jockey for the inheritance, an intricate web of lies, adultery, anger, lust, crime, and assorted dark doings is slowly uncovered. Piecing it all together is the affable, clever Kindaichi, constantly scratching his dandruff-afflicted head, cogs spinning all the while.

    The original Inugami Family is revered as a classic, not only for its large box-office gross, but for its dark, involving mystery, and tangled web of relationships and motives, which criss-cross into a convincing whole. Since Inugamis features the exact same storyline as the original, the film automatically earns points as a compelling mystery about a dysfunctional post-war Japanese family and its untold secrets. What's questionable is Ichikawa's approach, as the film is not simply a remake, but a virtual shot-for-shot reenactment. Ishikawa takes care to ape his original work, and presents the remake with the same settings, costumes, music, pacing, and even shot framing of the original. There are some differences, including a few different shots, a little more blood, and different dialogue at Kindaichi's farewell, but otherwise, it's like you're watching the exact same film with an entirely different cast. With the exception of Koji Ishizaka, of course.

    Does that mean that The Inugamis is automatically a great film? Well, maybe good, but not great. The word "great" should be reserved for the original, which possesses the intrigue of an old-fashioned murder mystery and the unsettling vibe of a classic, suspense-driven horror film. Inugamis is just like The Inugami Family, except that it's not an old film but a new film made to seem like an old one, from pacing to settings to even performance. The actors all seem like they're echoing an old style of melodrama, such that their performances - and the film itself - take on an air of artificiality. This self-consciousness relegates The Inugamis to the realm of cinema curiosity. Those who haven't seen the original can enjoy the story, but may find inadvertent amusement thanks to the film's dated feel. Those who have seen the original can enjoy the remake's obvious reverence, but even then the necessity of the whole exercise may be called into question. Basically, you can look at the film two ways: as a nifty cinema history experiment, or as a needless exercise in cinema regurgitation. Either way, Inugamis has some entertainment value. It won't qualify as a great work in its own right, but as cinema culture kitsch, The Inugamis satisfies.

    Much better than the original! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    I'm not sure there is any precedent for a director doing what Ichikawa Kon has done here: Make a scene-by-scene copy of an old film. Almost nothing has been changed from the original ... and yet everything has changed! I suspect that only a filmmaker with the impeccable reputation of Ichikawa could find backers willing to foot the bill for such a production.

    Here's what I wrote about the original 1976 movie: "[T]he film has all of the elements of a classic murder mystery, including a vast family fortune, squabbles over the inheritance, a swiftly rising body count, severed heads, two masked men, an idiosyncratic detective, an incompetent police chief, and a host of characters each with his or her own motive for committing the homicides." (You can see my entire somewhat lukewarm review of he original film elsewhere on the YesAsia website.)

    All of those elements remain present in the new film. Indeed, all the original story and the original settings remain intact. The primary thing that has changed is the pace of the movie. To be blunt, the 1976 was too long and it just dragged. In the remake, Ichikawa has trimmed more than 10 minutes from the film and has done so not by cutting scenes, but simply by speeding up the action and dialogue. The effect of this faster pace is dramatic: Everything is energized. The dialogue is snappier, the acting is more intense, the story becomes seamless, and the film rivets the viewer from start to finish. The movie also benefits from improvements in filmmaking technology; it simply looks and sounds better than the original.

    If you liked the 1976 movie, then you almost certainly will love this remake. If you haven't yet seen the original, then I encourage you to dive into this thrillingly murderous mystery. You'll be glad you did!
