The Blind Swordsman: Zatoichi

Blind traveler Zatoichi (Beat Takeshi) is a master swordsman and a masseur with a fondness for gambling on dice games. When he arrives in a village torn apart by warring gangs, he sets out to protect the townspeople. He is also enlisted to help two sibling geisha, Okinu (Yûko Daike) and Osei (Daigorô Tachibana), avenge the murder of their parents, who were slaughtered in a massacre. Zatoichi must fight his way through numerous enemies before finally clashing with a heartless crime boss.

A masterpiece of wry violence and stylized mayhem, "The Blind Swordsman: Zatoichi" turns loose one of Japan's most brilliant film auteurs, Takeshi Kitano, on one of its most enduring pop legends: the movie myth of Zatoichi, the fat, blind, 19th-century masseur and swordsman who slashed his way through dozens of wildly popular films in the 1960s and '70s.
