THE LAW OF THE NIGHT

THE LAW OF THE NIGHT

video/64min/color
Director: Yosuke Yamashita

 

* with English subtitle

A young man works as a security guard at a university. He patrols the campus grounds at night, makes small talk with an older coworker when necessary, and goes home when his shift ends in the morning. There is nothing special about his routine. Then one day, he becomes obsessed with "watching" things. His obsession begins when he starts to sneak looks at a certain female student, then it escalates when he happens to witness a random attacker assault a person on campus. The chase between the random attacker who victimizes women living alone and the young man who tails him unfolds in the city at night. The distance between them gradually becomes closer until they end up colliding. The terror of being assaulted by the random attacker and the possibility that the young man might actually be a random attacker himself build up the suspense in this movie.
