JAPAN | 80 minutes | 2018

Two Ronins (samurais without masters) take a break from fighting to rest up in a village. Strangers to each other, it’s the opportunity to step back and reflect on their warrior condition. Violence is never far away, however, and they are soon challenged by a group of local outlaws up to no good. Awarded the Louve d’honneur in 2014 for devastating classics like Tetsuo, Tokyo Fist and Bullet Ballet, master filmmaker Tsukamoto returns with his first samurai film. An incisive reflection on violence, murder and war, it is a great existentialist film.
