The Stairway to the Distant Past
Director Kaizo Hayashi melds a number of different genres to create this comedic thriller about a down-on-his-luck detective, Mike Hama (Masatoshi Nagase). He's barely able to work and has no home, but his fortunes turn when he meets a woman who turns out to be his long-lost mother. This discovery initially sets off a tailspin, but Mike decides the occasion is the perfect time to pull his life together … if he can stay out of trouble.
