Hana-bi

This poetic crime drama centers on policeman Nishi, whose life is falling apart around him. He quits his job to be with his dying wife, but owes money to the Japanese mafia. The film won the 1996 Venice Film Festival "Golden Lion" Award and established Kitano as a serious director. Film critic Roger Ebert wrote that "the movie is not about action, but about consequences and states of mind."
