as i have it on dvd. brilliant foreign cinema, still don't understand what's with the fat guy who runs around pretending to be a samurai though.
on Yojimbo and Sanjuro, both by Akira Kurosawa, where Zatoichi was brought up repeatedly.
It's a good film, but a bit derivative.
the 'dance' sequences with the people in the field are amazing :)
its an awesome film! i love the pretty much all of takeshi kitano's work! i think he's really good at producing films that have a great balance of action, humor and beauty!
Got it on DVD on a whim a couple of years back. Great film.
And the ending is great, with everyone dancing.
It's really funny in places too, like with the gambling nephew and his attempts to 'train' three guys at one point.
The Kitano or one of the old ones ?
