A dark and
sinister chambara [Samurai Tale] with Nakadai as an insane, wandering
swordsman ready and willing to wreck havoc during the turbulent final
days of the Shogunate rule. Living by his own twisted moral code, Ryunosuke
kills without mercy, cheats without remorse, rapes without guilt. This
is the birth of the nihilistic antihero in Japanese cinema.
