Directed by Toshio Matsumoto
Japan, 1971
Drama, Horror


Appearing at first like a standard samurai movie, this Japanese film is a tragic drama with overtones from Japan’s classic theaters: Kabuki and Noh. Indeed, the protagonist’s unwitting self-destruction resembles that of Oedipus in Greek drama.
