Ah a movie!
Got to see ZATOICHI today!
(japanese site | english site)
It was amusing as hell and yet had a storyline I just wanted to go through. Lots of "STOMP" inspired sequences too. Ah, I liked it, I have to admit that. The effects we're perfectly clean (as they tend to be with Asian films like Hero or Legend of Zu Mountain) but they are amazingly lovely to look at. (Unlike those blunders Matrix Reloaded had).
Go see it!
And you'll never look at Samurai, Geishas and Ronin in the same way again!
