|BOHACHI, Clan of the Forgotten Eight|
Directed by: ISHII Teruo
Cast: TANBA Tetsuro, HISHIMI Yuriko, IBUKI Goro
Screen legend Tanba Tetsuro plays a nihilistic ronin who faces down the "Clan of the
Forgotten Eight", who got their name because they lost all their basic emotions like
conscience, gratitude, loyalty, shame etc.
With his sword Onibouchou (literally: Ogre's
Kitchen Knife!) Tanba's character hacks into their ranks in ways that has limbs and
severed heads fly everywhere and the blood flows in rivers! On his way, he only stops
to take every woman he meets, forcefully if need be!
A very violent jidaigeki classic from the early seventies, a must see!
