Crime Or Punishment Film Poster


Offbeat Japanese comedy about a model who is forced to act as a police chief for a day. Ayame (Riko Narumi) is an aspiring pin-up girl who is outraged to discover, while browsing the magazines at a local store, that she has been shunted off the front cover of a title in favour of her friend, Momo (Sakura Andô). She is so unhappy she actually runs out of the shop with the magazine and ends up in custody for shoplifting. By chance, the police have been looking for a model to act as their nominal 'police chief' for a day, as a PR gimmick. Ayame is assigned the role as punishment but is bewildered to find that the men actually look to her for guidance on policing matters. Even worse, her ex-boyfriend, Haruki (Kento Nagayama), who she has reason to believe may be a serial killer, works as a policeman and is now her subordinate. It promises to be a very challenging day indeed...
