Blade of the Immortal

“With a body count in the thousands and a breakneck pitch that starts feverishly intense and only builds upwards… certainly one of Takashi Miike’s most lethal works.” – IndieWire

Manji, an indestructible warrior is hired as a bodyguard for Rin whose kendo-master father and pupils were slaughtered by the swordsmen of Itto-ryu. Together they embark on a spectacular campaign of vengeance. Director Takashi Miike’s 100th film, based on Hiroaki Sumara’s popular manga, combines huge, bloody battle scenes with healthy doses of humour, fantasy and visual splendor.

Starring Takuya Kimura, Hana Sugisaki, Sota Fukushi, Hayato Ichihara, Erika Toda, Kazuki Kitamura
