|SASAKI KOJIRO - THE COMPLETE SAGA|
"Mori no Ishimatsu"
Director: SAEKI Kyoshi
Cast: AZUMA Chiyonosuke, OKAWA Keiko, CHIHARA Shinobu, KATAOKA Chiezo
Toei pulls out all stops in this dynamic retelling of master swordsman Sasaki Kojiro’s life story. Perfectly cast with Azuma Chinyonosuke in the lead and superstar Kataoka Chiezo as his lifelong nemesis Miyamoto Musashi this is perhaps the ultimate version of what led up to the most famous duel in Japanese history. From his earliest beginnings as a lowly student of swordsmanship to the battle on the beach that would determine Japan’s finest swordsman, this is samurai movie making at its finest!
