Zero Focus (ゼロの焦点, Zero no shōten) is a 1961 Japanese mystery film directed by Yoshitaro Nomura and is based on a novel by Seicho Matsumoto.


One week into newlywed Teiko Uhara's marriage, her husband, Kenichi, leaves on a short business trip and doesn't return. Teiko travels across Japan to search for him, and along the way discovers some surprising facts about her husband's past. With only a pair of old photographs among his belongings to go off of, Teiko tries to figure out what has happened to him.




A remake directed by Inudō Isshin with Ryōko Hirosue as Teiko Uhara was released in 2009.
