Gukoroku Traces of Sin review

Trace of Sin is a murder mystery movie that's more about hierarchy in today's society featuring an all star cast of Mitsushima Hikari, Tsumabuki Satoshi, Usuda Asami and Ichikawa Yui.

Mitsushima Hikari is in prison for child neglect and her brother Tsumabuki Satoshi starts looking into the murder of a family that happened one year ago.

The more Tsumabuki Satoshi finds out about the murdered parents, the more we discover this cruel world that makes up Japanese society.

This is Jmovies at its best; dark, uncomprimising and unafraid to make the viewer feel very uncomfortable.

I was gripped by every word, enjoyed every frame and performance. I would say Traces of Sin is 2017's The Snow White Murder Case.

The less I say about Trace of Sin the better. I got the raw from nyaa here and the subs from Avistaz. Must watch

I just recently saw this too and would love if you also made a spoiler review!! I'd like to hear your thoughts on the ending.

So would I. At the end the person I was watching with and I just looked at each other and said "Wha...?" May have to watch it again, but after waiting awhile.

Any chance Hikari created that ending in her mind?

@L, Anon and vanbro - I'll have to rewatch the movie. I wasn't too focused on the ending after watching and more about what it said about society.
