Does anyone know whether the following movie really exist, or who may have it in ones collection?

This site claims to allow you to watch it online, but requires that you download some software first. I don't know if I trust them.

They've hardcoded the phrase "Required codec is missing" into the source code, so the same alert is given to all visitors without regard for what the visitor's hardware/software configuration might be.

So yes, it is some kind of scam.

IMHO it's worse than a spam site.

First it wants you to install "grabiod". Then you are looking at a list of recent films that are not available for retail sales. And... not the item you were looking for - in this case the ten-ichi film.

:(
