Stairway to the Distant Past

DIRECTED BY - Kaizo Hayashi

Picking off where he left off with THE MOST TERRIBLE TIME IN MY LIFE, director Kaizo Hayashi creates yet another witty, action-packed homage/spoof to French New Wave cinema, American film noir, and Japanese gangster films. THE STAIRWAY TO THE DISTANT PAST once again stars Masatoshi Nagase as Private Detective Mike Hama, who when the film begins, is practically homeless. Things change however, with the arrival of Lilly, a beautiful and mysterious stripper whose true identity may hold the secret to Mike's past. Hayashi brings part two of his acclaimed series to life with vivid color and graphic violence captured in an ironic and highly stylized way.
