Back in 1934 during the Japanese-Chinese war, the world's largest known black pearl goes missing and remains as one of the great unsolved mysteries in Japan. Some years later, a war veteran named Gohei Yamamori confessed that he knew where the black pearl was all along to his wife Matsuko (Mitsuo Nakayama) before his untimely death. His last words were (as in the female genitalia) print. Puzzled, Matsuko enlists the aid of a private detective named Kuroda (Yukijiro Hotaru) to help her solve the mystery and find the coveted black pearl. Things become more complicated when Gohei's son Hasuo and his niece Yoko (Serina Miyabi) also expressed interest in the coveted jewel. What makes matters worst is when mystery writer Matsuki (Naoto Takenata) offers his aid and people begin turning up dead; can Kuroda and his assistant Hamako (pink veteran Yuka Takemura) solve the mystery before they also fall victim to the killer?

Otherwise, there were really very few seduction scenes to speak of when one thinks of train and groper, maybe only 4 or 5, while the rest of the film is not even on the train system at all.
I'm not saying it was a bad film, it wasn't. It was amusing, and the story line was, as reviewers have pointed out, nicely played out. I just was expecting something else when I ordered it. Maybe not so much in the way of seduction scenes, as that was not what this movie was all about, but at least more action taking place on a train, where more groping would take place, as that was what the title was telling me was to have been expected.
on trains in search of a mysterious pearl. Fair production values, cheesey dialogue, and totally unreal sexual situations combine for a funny 'mystery' romp.
If you're looking for a film you don't have to think about or take seriously, this one'll be a lot of fun for you.

Not worth the money most of the really good scenes were blotted out which killed the whole plot of the movie.Published 10 months ago by Howard Sweeney
First off, this movie’s stats are deceiving. The release date is listed as “2009.” But the movie was actually produced in 1984. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Jenifer M
I didnt really expect more than an effed up crazy movie. I think the age played a part in its terribleness. Not a lot of sense to be made of this one. Read morePublished on September 11, 2010 by The Battlekat
