|AT RIVER'S EDGE|
(Ogawa no Hotori)
THE LATEST MOVIE FROM THE WRITINGS OF FUJISAWA SHUHEI!
Directed by: SHINOHARA Tetsuo
Starring: HIGASHIYAMA Noriyuki, KIKUCHI Rinko, KATAOKA Ainosuke
The works of author Fujisawa Shuhei have reached their pinnacle with this tale of a clan's vengeance against a deserter who had formerly been one of their most highly skilled swordsmen. This mission is assigned to Inui Sakanosuke, the only man in the clan who has a chance of emerging victorious.
What might have been a simple tale of justice is complicated by the fact that the deserter Sakuma is the brother-in-law of Inui, and his best friend. Sakuma's wife, Tazu, is also a highly skilled fencer, as both Inui children were taught by their father how to excel with the blade. This is a superb motion picture that raises the level of Fujisawa's work to a new level!
2011 Color Anamorphic Widescreen (16:9) 103 min.
