The Mole Song: Undercover Agent Reiji

(Mogura no uta – sennyu sosakan Reiji, 土竜の唄 潜入捜査官 REIJI)

Reiji Kikukawa (Toma Ikuta) is an inept rookie cop with a strong sense of justice. Fired for trying to arrest a city councillor caught molesting a teenage girl, he is secretly re-hired as an undercover agent and sent on a mission to infiltrate Sukiya-kai, Japan’s most notorious Yakuza clan. Suffering various hardships along the way, Reiji fights to survive the ruthless yakuza world by becoming a sworn brother to the senior member, Crazy Papillon (Shinichi Tsutsumi), whilst acting as an informer to the police.

Coinciding with the celebration of his release of 100 films to date, this hilarious and energetic manga adaption by cult classic director Takashi Miike is not to be missed.
