Sakebi (a.k.a. Retribution) is a 2006 Japanese psychological thriller written and directed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa, and starring Kôji Yakusho, Manami Konishi, Tsuyoshi Ihara, and Riona Hazuki .
Detective Yoshioka is in charge of investigating a homicide. During the investigations, he discovers that the victim, despite having been drowned in a pond, had sea water in the stomach. From that point on, everything detective Yoshioka finds, including a loose coat button, seems to point at him as the main suspect; however, he doesn't seem to remember any connection or close relationship with the victim.
