Kofuku (幸福, Kōfuku), also known as "Lonely Heart", is a 1981 Japanese mystery film directed by Kon Ichikawa, based upon the 1961 American novel Lady, Lady I Did It in Ed McBain's 87th Precinct series.[1][2][3] The film stars Yutaka Mizutani, Toshiyuki Nagashima and Rie Nakahara in a police procedural surrounding murder at a bookstore and the private lives of the cops trying to solve the case.



The New York Times said the film is moderately successful but the characterizations lack depth and detail.[4]
