Directed by Takashi Miike

With Ebizô Ichikawa,Koji Yakusho,Eita,Hikari Mitsushima,Naoto Takenaka

In a filmography celebrated for its epic bloodbaths and assaultive style, Miike's first foray into 3-D is a triumph of restraint. Adapting Masaki Kobayashi's classic tale of an unemployed samurai seeking to reestablish his honor through seppuku, the action-film master trades in his predecessor's fury for melancholy, framing elaborately choreographed fight sequences with a contemplative melodrama of Shakespearean dimensions. Unraveling the labyrinthine plot at an elegant pace, this remake also boasts some of the most gorgeous images of Miike's career.
