A wonderful character study, of love, happiness and duty
20 March 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Those coming to this moving expecting a fast moving swashbuckling tale full of samurai sword fights will be disappointed. Indeed, the one sword fight in this movie could have been cut in half, or cut altogether, and the movie might have been improved for it.

This movie is a wonderful character study, of duty, honour, of the nature of happiness and love and fulfillment.

Deeply moving, poignant, and one of the most amazingly ambiguous endings I can think of ... leaving the viewer with finality yet absolute wondering ... who is happy now, and who is fulfilled?

As I write this, the eyes of the world are on tragedy in Japan. This movie might shed some light for those wondering what culture is it that is dealing with this recent tragedy, and how will they manage it...
