Plot: Alex Fayard, a successful crime novel author, has been invited to Japan for the release of his latest book. One night, he encounters Tamao, a geisha, who confides to him her fears. One of her former lovers, who may well be Shundei Oe, a novelist famous for his extremely violent and disturbing books, is threatening to kill her. Fayard, an Oe specialist, agrees to help her and finds himself pitted against a man who turns his trip into a bloody investigation where fiction becomes indistinguishable from reality.

I was really impressed with this film. It's based on the novel, Beast in the Shadows (1928), by the great Edogawa Rampo.
A Canadian DVD came out on August 25, 2009. A Blu-ray has been released in some country because there are Blu-ray rips. Let me know if you need help finding it.
