Storyline

After more than four hundred years of war between the Shinobi warriors of the Manjidani Koga and Tsubagakure Iga clans, the Lord Hattori Hanzou decrees that they must live in peace. Both clans live hidden in the woods and mountain without confrontation and without training ninjas in the shadow art of Shinobi. In 1614, the Lord of the Lords is convinced that the clans are dangerous threats for keeping peace in his lands, and his advisor plots a Machiavellian plan to destroy their best warriors in a contest. Meanwhile, the young Iga Oboro and Koga Gennesuke fall in love for each other. When Oboro's grandmother and leader of Iga clan Ogen and Gennesuke's father and leader of the Koga clan Danjo kill each other, Oboro and Gannesuke must lead their warriors in the ultimate battle of the Shinobi clans. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

This movie is the best. I love the two main cast Nakama Yukie and Odagiri Joe
26 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really like this movie when I first saw it, because it is like a Ninja version of Romeo and Juliet with some West Side story ( without the singing. Odagiri Joe and Nakama Yukie gave it all they got to make this movie successful and I think its great that they did that. They also have a previous mini series together called Kao. If you movie action movie lovers are hoping for multi action in this movie, you are wasting your time, because this movie is not all about action and it barely shows it, but a lot of scene's in this movie are really strong and great. The meaning and plot of this movie is trying to tell the viewer's about how a great love and easily be torn apart by useless war and family/clans feud's against each other. Anyway this movie is really good its is the only great movie that I have seen this year.
