THE LAST SAMURAI!

“With The Last Samurai, Kenji Misumi does something that few artists ever have the chance to do: deliver his final and definitive statement, reaching a conclusion that brings his entire body of work to a close. A genuinely great film.”

- Tom Mes, Midnight Eye

Synopsis

Hideki Takahashi stars as Toranosuke, a disinherited son who finds new life by immersing himself in the true “way of the Samurai.” Mentored by Ikemoto, the “Boss of Spies,” Sugi is eager to test his skill in the service of the Shogunate. It is a time of crisis. The city of Kyoto has been overrun with insurgents. Forbidden by his master to get involved, Toranosuke is soon drawn into the wars, massacres and upheavals that marked the final days of the Tokugawa Shogunate. Samurai vs. samurai, spy vs. spy, friend vs. friend, conspiracies and assassinations abound. Who will survive to become “the last samurai”?

The 67th and final film by famed director Kenji Misumi (Zatoichi, the Blind Swordsman, Lone Wolf and Cub). Featuring dazzling swordfights, elaborate battle sequences and a stirring score from internationally renowned composer Akira Ifukube (Godzilla series, The Quiet Duel), The Last Samurai stands among the great classics of the genre. Boasting a script by co-written by Kenji Misumi, this is perhaps Misumi’s most epic and personal film.
