Another retelling of the Blind Swordsman..
Another retelling of one of Japan’s longest running fictional characters. For what I understand, there is over 25 films and tv series based on this character. Even a Hollywood made a version of this in 1990 as ‘Blind Fury’, starring the late Rutger Hauer.

I quite liked this version, directed and starring Takeshi Kitano (aka Beat Takeshi). His productions and acting are usually quite poised and composed, which may not appeal to some. Some of the production values are probably not up to scratch by today’s standards, but this is forgivable nonetheless.

I rate this 7.5/10, but as I can’t do half scores here. So I’m rounding up.

Not Your Mama’s Blind Swordsman
Takeshi Kitano’s take on the legendary character of Zatoichi has finally arrived and its a great film.

As Zatoichi wanders the country side he helps an older lady carry a load. She allows him to stay the night and before long he’s involved with the lives in the near by town and two sets of travelers who are there for their own purposes.

That’s about the best description of the plot that you can get with out revealing too much about whats going on in the movie. The danger is not in you knowing whats going on, rather its the joy of finding out as the film progresses what all the stories are. The stories are told in a disjointed, almost haphazard sort of way, much like the the memories they are. The flashback device is both a strength and the film’s only real flaw, in that at times we can’t be certain for a good portion of the flashback when its occurring. Its a bit jarring and while I’m certain it will play better on later viewings, here on the first viewing, it kept breaking the spell.

The spell the film weaves is unique, as is fitting a truly unique film. How many other “samurai” films end with a huge tap dance number? The movie is funny and touching; at times very serious, at others considerably less so; there are explosions of violence and moments when nothing happens for a stretch. It tells a simple story of a town over run by criminals but it also asks you to consider other issues, like what would you do to survive?

The film is very bloody, but not overly so, especially considering that all of the fights involve edged weapons and that Takeshi strove for a realism of sorts by having the battles over almost before they start. There are limbs and blood flying about.

I really like this film simply because it confounds your expectations. It doesn’t go and do what you want when you want. There are one or two things I thought were being built up for a punchline, but it never came. There are also a couple of times when I thought things were over but they kept going. This film has a rhythm all its own. There is a music, literally, in what happen on screen, be it farming, training, building, or dancing. It is what it is and makes no apologies for it.

If you love movies, samurai, off beat or otherwise just see this movie. It will probably stay with you well after you see it.

9 out of 10.
