Comment about Actor in film
21 March 2011 | by desertdoodSee all my reviews

Well, it was made in Japan in 1958 about a 13th century Religious leader, so....

bearing that in mind (and yes it is the only film ever about Nichiren Daishonin) .... but that's not why I wish to comment today ...

it is Kazuo Hasegawa ( 長谷川 一夫 ) 1908 to 1984 who is acting as "Nichiren" in the movie (His last film was in 1963 if I recall correctly).

It's just an interesting film for weird people like me hahaha, I wouldn't recommend it to the average viewer. I like old American movies too, like old Charlie Chaplin stuff and others I've long forgotten (for only having seen them online and only once at that).
