|Duel at Fort Ezo|
Directed: Kengo Furosawa
Starring: Nakadai Tatsuya,Yuzo Kayama, Rentaro Mikune
From an original story by Renzaburo Shibata, creator of the Son Of The Black Mass series, this film is a virtual tour-de-force of action and excitement.
A team of 8 swordsmen are sent to the northernmost island of Ezo (Hokkaido) to rescue a Russian Princess kidnapped by the savage Ainu and held for ransom at the 300 year old Fort Ezo.
Surprises abound as the team faces every kind of danger while trying to save the girl and keep the Russians from invading at the same time. The Ainu are the aboriginal people of Japan, and have many similarities to Native American fighting tactics.
