Starring: NAKADAI Tatsuya
Directed by: GOSHA Hideo
An absolute tour de force. Based on a novel by Ikenami Shotaro, this is one of the most exciting films to come out of Japan. The leader of a band of thieves, Nakadai stakes everything on one last big job. Incredible obstacles arise, not the least of which are caused by the government officials who are trying to trap the gang through a series of raids and ambushes. This Masterpiece by renowned filmmaker Gosha Hideo shows sword fighting like it’s never been seen before. Extraordinary action, and a thoroughly complex plot that keeps twisting until the final frame, just when you think it's over, there is another surprise. Brilliant beyond words!
