A great samurai film, not for the uninitiated
17 August 2003 | by (Northern California) – See all my reviews

This movie is one in a series about a disenfranchised samurai who travels accompanied by his son in a baby carriage. It is a strange story that I saw in comic book form in the adult comic "Heavy Metal".

I'm embarrassed to admit that I claim to be a samurai film fan and yet have never seen anything outside Akira Kurosawa's work. This is my first and I am very impressed. Unfortunately the movie is not technically up to Kurosawa's standards, but all the rest has much to match his films. In many ways this story is more for a Japanese audience who know what they are looking at. Kurosawa occasionally panders to a somewhat tourist mentality. He is also much more restrained in portraying sword play and sex. We see full frontal nudity and graphic violence in the sword play.

The acting is every bit as skilled and passionate as we see in Kurosawa's movies. The sets also are very well done and we have an excellent sense of place.
