Takeshi Kitano, Tadanobu Asano
Colour 119 minutes
Plot: the blind masseur Ichi gets involved with a pair of geishas seeking revenge for the murder of their parents, and also two gangs fighting for control Yojimbo-style in a feudal Japanese town.
A masterful work by auteur Kitano. Notice particularly the use of sound in this film which is appropriate given the blindness of the lead character. A good bit of tap dance at the end too, besides all the sword-play.
