One of the worst samurai movie of 60th: yes, I really mean it. It's not clear understand how Satsuo Yamamoto made such dull and faded film with Nakadai, Go Kato and attractive plot. Great Nakadai wears one, OK may be 2 or 3, expression on his face in that way gives to understand how badly he has not like work in the movie. Structure of the frame absolutely accidental, visual poorness of the film wonder me, I never understand people who rates this on 10. Was he or she sее works of Masaki Kobayashi, Hideo Gosha, others great directors or just appearance of samurai and swords makes them ecstatic? Apologize for possible errors - my English far from perfect.
