Yougisha X no Kenshin (Japanese film: “A Suspect X’s devotion”

Although I haven’t seen the TV drama “Galileo”, I watched its movie “Yougisha X no Kenshin” on the other day. I haven’t read the original novel written by Keigo Higashino.

…It was really good! As a mystery, it has thrilling and surprise, as well as bizarre feeling, and as human drama, its title “Kenchin (= devotion)” exactly describes the key point of the story.

I felt like I wanted to read the original novel. I think film-hour is too short for this kind of story, and it would be more touching if I read the detailed description of each person’s emotion.

Anyway the actor, Shinichi Tsutsumi who acted Ishigami was amazing. When I read reviews by other people, most of them said “Ishigami should be more frumpy.”, but maybe because I haven’t read the original, he looked enough “frumpy” despite the actor is typical cool man lol He looked so bizarre! Basically he talks so quietly with emotionless face, but his behaviour was so touching at the end. Great actor.

By the way, Yukawa, acted by Masaharu Fukuyama, is he a kind of “light” person like that? And I heard the person acted by Ko Shibazaki is not in the original novel…was it necessary?

….Well, I really want to read the original.

By the way, now I’m so interested in “Four colours theorem puzzle”…
