Directed by Masahiro Shinoda
A spy's defection from the shogun throws the world of
swordsmen into violent conflict in this visually striking samurai classic
from Masahiro Shinoda (Double Suicide).
Following Koriyama's defection, Sasuke Sarutobi (Koji Takahashi) tracks the
traitor across the countryside, only to discover that a mysteriously veiled
figure is trailing them both. Shinoda keeps the action moving in a complex
narrative rife with deceit, double-crosses, and surprises. Japanese with
English subtitles. 100 minutes.
