Strangers in the City(行きずりの街,Yukizuri no Machi) is a 2010 Japanese thriller film directed by Junji Sakamoto, starring Toru Nakamura and Manami Konishi. It is based on the novel of the same title by Tatsuo Shimizu.
Strangers in the City premiered at the Busan International Film Festival on October 11, 2010. It also screened as the North American premiere at the Japan Cuts on July 17, 2011.
Mark Schilling of The Japan Times criticized Strangers in the City, noting that the director Junji Sakamoto and the screenwriter Shoichi Maruyama could not decide what the film is about. Meanwhile, Russell Edwards of Variety said, "[Manami] Konishi exhibits a powerful range of suppressed emotions as Hatano's former child bride-cum-Tokyo bargirl."
