    I`M FLASH! (?????????!, Aimu Furasshu!, 2012) is a stylish violent-action-thriller from visionary filmmaker Toshiaki Toyoda (9 SOULS, BLUE SPRING), starring Tatsuya Fujiwara (BATTLE ROYALE, DEATH NOTE) and Ryuhei Matsuda (TABOO, BLUE SPRING). Story Rui Yoshino (Tatsuya Fujiwara) is the charismatic young master of a lucrative religious sect calling itself “Life is Beautiful”. Life is indeed beautiful for the cocky cult leader. Famous, fast-talking, good looking and filthy rich, he has the attention of the mass media while his many followers (particularly the female ones) treat him as a role model, escape route, and god. One hot night at a night club, he picks up a beautiful young woman named Rumi (Kiko Mizuhara), and takes her out on a drunken drive that turns out to be less of a cruise to short-term earthly pleasures than a fateful ride into the unknown. They crash a fancy sports car, kill a motorcyclist, leave Rumi in a coma, and Rui in deep trouble. The young guru miraculously escapes physically unscathed, but the mass media turns on him. Newspaper headlines declare, Drunk Driving Crash! Young Master is a murderer?! To ride out the scandal, Rui’s mother and sister -- both high level members of the cult -- arrange for him and three bodyguards (Ryuhei Matsuda, Kento Nagayama, Shigeru Nakano) to go into seclusion on a remote southern island. But during that brief ride with Rumi, some kind of restlessness has stirred within Rui`s soul. And that’s when events start to spin out of control towards an unexpected outcome that no one could ever imagine...
