Intolerance (2021)

Review

Furuta Shinta and Matsuzaka Tori co-star in this humanistic drama. The film depicts the death of a junior high school girl who collides with a car while fleeing after being caught shoplifting, and the complicated relationship between the victim’s father and the people involved in the accident. The film is planned by producer Kawamura Mitsuyoshi, who has worked on films such as The Newspaper Reporter and Miyamoto to You, and directed and written by Yoshida Keisuke, who also worked on Kawamura’s film, Irene. The film shows a story in which everyone involved can be either a victim or a perpetrator.

A junior high school girl tries to shoplift in the cosmetics section of a supermarket, but when the shop manager, Naoto Aoyagi (Matsuzaka Tori), sees her, she runs away unintentionally and is run over by a truck and a car on the national highway, killing her. However, the daughter’s father (Arata Furuta) does not believe the accusation that his daughter was stealing from the store, and his growing distrust of her death gradually leads him to hunt down the people involved in the accident. He begins to place people involved in his daughter’s death, including Naoto Aoyagi and the car driver, into a corner. Meanwhile, Naoto Aoyagi and the female car driver become confused by Mitsuru Soeda’s pressure and the intense media coverage.

Mitsuru Soeda, the nightmarish father who makes the viewer’s heart race, is played by Arata Furuta, a leading actor of Gekidan-Shinkansen who has established a unique presence in the world, in his first starring role in seven years. As Naoto Aoyagi, the manager of a supermarket, who is never forgiven for getting down on his knees and crying, his life is put in the hands of his boss, Tori Matsuzaka, who won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in “The Newspaper Reporter”. This is the first time that Shinta Furuta and Tori Matsuzaka have worked together, and their breathtaking performance will leave you breathless.
