Cert: 12 Year: 2001 Length: 86 mins Language: Hindi with English subtitles
A low-budget UK film with an epic, big-budget feel. British-born debut director, Kapadia shot The Warrior in the heat of the Rajashani desert and the cold mountains of the Himalayas. It tells the story (based on a Japanese folk legend) of a violent killer in the service of a tyrannical lord who experiences a spiritual awakening and abandons his profession. The majestic scale of its imagery counters the simplicity of the film's narrative. Dialogue is kept to a minimum while the musical score and epic camera-work combine to create an ambitious first feature of great panache.
A visually resplendent epic..it's bold, simple mythic cinema
