It all starts very innocently: Office worker Yoshioka bumps into lovely Mayumi (Yoko Mihara), they exchange a few words, then she dashes off - and then Yoshioka is arrested, and a wallet that's not his is found with him. His own wallet however on the other hand is gone. The whole thing is cleared up eventually, Mayumi is a pickpocket, and on the run from the police she just passed her most recent loot (and therefore) evidence on to the next guy she bumped into, in hopes to throw the authorities off her scent - and successfully so.

His recent arrest though creates problems at Yoshioka's work: Sure, nobody believes he's a pickpocket for a moment, but with even the shadow of a doubt looming, his bosses think it's best to transfer him to another branche - which would mean move hundreds of miles away ... in a mere couple of days. Yoshioka resents that.

Yoshioka's girlfriend Reiko promises to fix things for him. She's a mere typist at the company, below Yoshioka in hierarchy, but she seems to be on good terms with the company's bosses - and why wouldn't she be, she might be just a little typist, and a lousy one at that, but actually she's a whore, rented out from the high class exclusive call girl agency she's working at.

A night with Reiko soon convinces Yoshioka's boss not to transfer him ... but then Reiko makes the mistake of telling her agency she wants out - and she's promptly killed for that. Yoshioka finds her dead body - and makes the mistake of running away, which immediately turns him into suspect number one, especially since his fingerprints are found at her place. Then though, Yoshioka runs into Mayumi, and she promises to help him out of his mix-up, if just for the thrills. Of course, now neither Yoshioka nor Mayumi know Reiko was actually a whore, but they slowly uncover it, and soon, Mayumi finds herself working at Reiko's agency while Yoshioka pretends to be a customer. But the whole thing turns out to be less and less fun by the minute, as the guys who run the agency are rather protective of their interests, and they are very ruthless, too, so eventually, Yoshioka and Mayumi are tied to chairs in the basement awaiting their execution - when eventually the police arrives to raid the place, called onto the scene by a paperplane Mayumi shot out her window at the brothel hours earlier to call for help, a paperplane that fell into the hands of a kid first who played with it for hours before handing it to someone in authority.

Of course, everything ends happily, and in the end, Yoshioka and Mayumi become a couple.

 

Typical crime thriller from Teruo Ishii's early days: It's light-footed and well-paced, at times it''s reminiscent of American film noir, and it touches upon some seedy subjects to titilate the audience but is as elegantly directed as its low budget allows. That said, this movie isn't exactly a classic, and it's not one of Ishii's more important movies - in fact you will probably have forgotten it in a mere couple of days -, it's just good genre entertainment, and there's nothing wrong with that.
