Following on The Twilight Samurai, the second part of director Yamada's trilogy is another gorgeously shot mid-19th century period piece, this one concerning a low-level samurai — who has never drawn his sword in anger — forced to put down a rebellion. Visually sweeping, rich in plot and character, wonderfully acted and beautifully designed.
