Play It Cool

Play It Cool ★★★½

I am less enthusiastic about the film than other reviewers here. I found it badly lit, slightly confusing in the central section and Mari Atsumi acting always over the top (this could be ok for a 1970 melodrama but today it looks and sounds pretty dated). Still, thanks to a fine script, represents a worthy entry in Daiei princess' own 3-years-long stellar filmography.
