Quotes

Yoshi: You look surprised, Hiroki. Cost me a few scars but a man's got to pay his dues to get ahead.
Jack Ellis: You lying son of a bitch.
Yoshi: You should have a word with your wife about lying, Hiroki.
Jack Ellis: Why are you doing this?
Yoshi: Status, rank, power. All our lives, respect and loyalty for the family that did save us and made us predators when we would have been prey.

The My Dinner with Andre of action cinema
14 July 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

That may seem like an odd comparison to make, but just like My Dinner with Andre about 30 minutes into Broken Path you realise that we're not changing location. Yes, this is essentially one long 90 minute fight and as a result feels much more like an experimental art film than an action film. Some people at the Phantasmagoria film festival where I saw the film this weekend found the superhuman resilience of the characters a bit unrealistic but I just saw it as live-action anime. The only problem I had was the character of the wife is pretty useless throughout the film, but otherwise I thoroughly enjoyed this and found it both a challenging and interesting take on a usually formulaic genre.
