Gen Takahashi’s Confessions of a Dog is a truly epic tale of crime and conscience to rank alongside the films of Martin Scorsese and Sidney Lumet. Inspired by true events, it dares to confront the corruption at the heart of Japanese law enforcement. Takeda (Shun Sagata) enters the police force as an idealistic recruit determined to make the world a safer place. He is quickly promoted to detective. Investigator Kusama (Jun’ichi Kawamoto) risks his life to gather evidence of illegal pay-offs, intimidation, violence and the drug deals that are part of everyday police life. Each man becomes torn between self-preservation and doing the right thing regardless of the consequences. We hope to welcome Gen Takahasi to the Festival. Part of Glasgow Film Festival
