Now i understand why Nemury Kyoshiro was well known in Japan
12 August 2001 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

Many directors say they are influence by Nemury Kyoshiro series. they always said it's a violent series, very dark and symbolic. But when i watch the 3 first, i just dont understand how they can say that.

But with this one, i understand. This movie was disturbing and very violent for the time it was made. Nemury deal with religion, hypocrite, greedy people and lunatics aristocrats. The villains are sadistic and the heroes kill without problem.

This movie set the future chanbara of the 70's like Lone Wolf and Cub, Lady Snowblood or Henzo The Blade.
