Uzumasa Limelight

Uzumasa raimuraito

Directed by Ken Ochiai
Japan, 2014
Action, Drama


These films wouldn’t be what they were if it weren’t for the “kirareyaku” (actors whose is to be killed by the lead star). Men who are killed, without ever being lit by the limelight. This story is about those men, the unsung heroes of classic jidaigeki films.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
