In a small town south of San Francisco, Sheriff Paul Del Moral (Pepe Serna) is driving home through the fog when he accidentally strikes a pedestrian, a lone Japanese man. However, before an investigation can take place the man disappears from the hospital without a trace. At the same time, Japanese mystery author Aki Akahori (Ayako Fujitani) takes a trip to San Francisco in order to escape the press tour for her latest book--a potboiler in her world famous "Inspector Takabe" series. Feeling lonely and vulnerable, she begins a romantic affair with a mysterious Japanese traveler from Reno (Kazuki Kitamura). Her new lover is charismatic and charming but abruptly disappears from the hotel, leaving behind his suitcase and a trail of questions... Written by Production (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

MAN FROM RENO is directed by Dave Boyle, written by Dave Boyle, Joel Clark, and Michael Lerman, produced by Ko Mori. I felt was an interestingly crafted noir type thriller. I liked that it was set somewhere other than New York and had a diverse cast.  The story for me kept me intrigued so I liked that as well as the pacing making the viewer has to pay attention to the clues. I also believe each actor portrayed their character very well and no one seemed miss cast or underwhelming in their performance. So for MAN FROM RENO I give it 4 stars.
