Zatoichi
561 members

His sword made him a hero... his courage made him a legend.

Zatoichi is a 19th century blind nomad who makes his living as a gambler and masseur. However, behind this humble facade, he is a master swordsman gifted with a lightning-fast draw and breathtaking precision. While wandering, Zatoichi discovers a remote mountain village at the mercy of Ginzo, a ruthless gang-leader. Ginzo disposes of anyone who gets in his way, especially after hiring the mighty samurai ronin, Hattori, as a bodyguard. After a raucous night of gambling in town, Zatoichi encounters a pair of geishas--as dangerous as they are beautiful--who've come to avenge their parents' murder. As the paths of these and other colorful characters intertwine, Ginzo's henchmen are soon after Zatoichi. With his legendary cane sword at his side, the stage is set for a riveting showdown.

Drôle de film bicéphale : une zone ultra technique qui mélange habilement les codes des films de samouraïs et de yakusas tatoués de partout, ça pisse parfaitement le sang. Et une zone vis comica où Takeshi fait le clown (son premier métier) : il se peint des yeux sur les paupières, glisse Priscilla folle du désert dans le casting, trucide son personnage principal comme dans un sketch ( zoup ! Il est mort !), tombe comme Buster Keaton et nous fait même un numéro de claquettes. J’ai beaucoup de regrets : Tadanobu Asano est sous-employé, la scène de hara-kiri ne semble servir à rien, c’est assez virtuose mais quel est le sens de tout ça ? Trop fourre-tout pour être un bon film.
