Ibun Sarutobi Sasuke

Masahiro Shinoda Japan, 1965

Maxime's rating of the film Samurai Spy

Engulfed in a surrounding quest for power, Sasuke seeks an existential purpose by questioning the motivations of his peers and refusing the absurdity of war - all the while taking part in this violent society. He is the catalyst of the trouble of his times, the one who is supposed to hold the information that will tilt power one way or another.
