Wonderful return to the themes of Tasogare seibei
I was watching this film in plane while returning from Japan. I noticed there is Yoji Yamadas’ latest film showing, so naturally I went off watching it. The film has very beautiful sceneries and the music and atmosphere is really nice. The camera-work is usual style of Yoji Yamada. It hides more than shows. Acting is good, especially Masatoshi Nagase (Stereo Future) acts surprisingly well as a strong minded, modest samurai. I was personally surprised the choice of Takako Matsu. But since she has proved herself in her earlier films such as Shigatsu Monogatari, I knew to expect a good result from her. The plot follows pretty much the same line with Tasogare Seibei and it doesn’t offer much surprise. Yet, I rate this movie 9, since it has the wonderful style of Yoji Yamada. It is a great samurai movie, and Masatoshi Nagase fans will not be disappointed.

The real last samurai.
Fans of the common chambara (swordfigfht) film will be disappointed – this is not an action film. Tartan films is making a mistake by loading its marketing of this film in America with hints that it might be. In fact, this film probably could better distributed by Criterion, since it is the equal of any of the Japanese dramas it handles.

This is a real throwback to the grand tradition of Japanese film – Ozu, Kurosawa, Mizoguchi. Flawless cinematography, almost painful care for detail, strong back story, meditative commentary on political history, and a passionate cross-caste romance, much as that captured in the “Samurai” trilogy. Sensitive acting and elegant direction. a romantic soundtrack that never becomes overbearing. Really a film for the ages.

This is the film most people should be watching instead of the Tom Cruise farce “The Last Samurai”. Indeed, sympathetic viewing of this film will at least make clear why many of us were outraged at the Cruise film – this has all the thoughtful reflection on the social tensions of that era that “The Last Samurai” lacked.

A fascinating demonstration that the Japanese well know their own history and need no reminders from Hollywood – and can depict that history with a sweep and vision easily as grand and as beautiful as anything Hollywood can produce.
