One of the best samurai movies ever made… From the same director who gave us Twilight Samurai comes a cerebral tale of honour, duty and revenge in a time of change in feudal Japan. Here is a movie that shows both the majestic halls of the Daimyo to the fields of the peasants. It is a tale of love and duty and honor and is written extremely well.
The epic tale of munezo a samurai being displaced in a rapidly changing japan. After a failed political coup he is ordered to prove his innocence by finding & killing yaichiro a former friend samurai & brilliant swordsman. Munezo enlists the help of their old teacher who entrusts him with a secret technique called the Hidden Blade which refers to a dreaded samurai sword skill.
