Synopsis

No Film Festival would be complete without a samurai sword epic and Blade of the Immortal, Takashi Miike’s 100th film, fits the bill perfectly. Based on a manga series it stars Takuya Kimura as Manji, a Shogunate era samurai, granted by a witch the dubious gift of eternal life.

After meeting a young girl, orphaned by a group of master swordsmen, Manji wreaks vengeance on them through a series of stylised showdowns – brilliantly choreographed, outlandishly violent and sometimes brutally comic to boot.

Critics

open_quote Blade goes for the carotid while offering a classic look and a comic-book story. It's part Kurosawa, part "X-Men," part "Ichi the Killer" close_quote Washington Post
