This eye-opening documentary explores the unknown (and gruesome) past of the ancient Samurai warriors. Painting a dramatic portrait through the eyes of a young peasant farmer forced into a warlord’s army, the film reveals the gritty, harsh reality of ancient Japan. Interwoven with the drama, two British historians (Dr. Stephen Turnbull and Antony Cummins) reveal new evidence from ancient Samurai war manuals which detail some of the brutal tricks used by the Samurai. Featuring living Grandmaster Tanaka, who still teaches the traditional fighting techniques, and with decent CG battle animations and original costumes…what’s not to love?
