Cold Fish (2010) - Official Trailer
An exciting Japanese high-tension thriller, chosen for his year's CPH PIX festival in Copenhagen. 'Cold Fish' is the long-awaited serial murder drama by this Japanese original about two tropical fish dealers. Shamoto runs a small, somewhat shabby shop together with his wife and a stepdaughter who hates him. He is a walking self-excuse, and even his wife rejects each of his pathetic approaches. But a fateful coincidence causes him to meet the rich and successful fish dealer Murata. He is a manic psychopath and a tempting devil, with a fantastic ability to coax people into depravity. He hires Shamoto and trains him in the noble art of murdering people and getting rid of their bodies. But everything comes at a price, and soon Shamoto has to ask himself if he is the hammer or the nail. 'Cold Fish' is as extremely revolting as it is terribly beautiful, and the nearly two and a half hours pass by in no time, and one is left with white knuckles, a knot in one's stomach - and a strengthened suspicion that human nature is fundamentally evil.
