Kedamono no ken

Hideo Gosha Japan, 1965

All Is Grace's rating of the film Sword of the Beast

A powerful film. The most amazing thing is that at 85 minutes so many things happen that you'd expect from an over two hours film. Beautifully shot, action packed (Im no fan of action scenes so much, but in this one, it was very well made) and good story narration makes this movie a recommendation among other samurai movies.
