Engrossing parable on transcending one's past
16 April 2010 | by poikkeusSee all my reviews

A gambler (Raizo Ichikawa) hopes to change his gambling ways when he meets the woman he's destined to marry (Tamao Nakamura), but fate steals her away from him. But years later, in an ironic twist of fate, he meets a girl who look just like his lost love, and vows to set things straight.

It's a very simple story, occasionally edited like a silent film, but this black and white drama with swordplay is thoroughly engrossing - especially in the unpredictable second half. What could have ended up as a tract against gambling and sin becomes a drama about redeeming the future by facing up to the past. Thoroughly satisfying, start to finish.
