The mission will change Manji in ways he could never imagine...
Creating a universe that transcends period drama, director Takashi Miike has made a film that truly befits the original manga this film is based on. A human drama knitting together a vast range of characters and their complications, it features spectacular fight scenes with a whole array of imaginative weapons, and a climactic battle involving some 300 people that took more than two weeks to film.
Blade of the Immortal, dir. Takashi Miike, Japan 2017, 140 mins
