Description: A humble and simple Takezo abandons his life as a knight errant. He’s sought as a teacher and vassal by Shogun, Japan’s most powerful clan leader. He’s also challenged to fight by the supremely confident and skillful Sasaki Kojiro. Takezo agrees to fight Kojiro in a year’s time but rejects Shogun’s patronage, choosing instead to live on the edge of a village, raising vegetables. He’s followed there by Otsu and later by Akemi, both in love with him. The year ends as Takezo assists the villagers against a band of brigands.

"A disillusioned Musashi Miyamoto has turned his back on the samurai life, becoming a farmer in a remote village, while his nemesis Kojiro now works for the shogun. Circumstances bring them back together for one final face-off. Though it’s marked by a memorably intense final battle sequence, the rousing conclusion to the Samurai Trilogy is engaged with matters of the heart as well, as Miyamoto must ask himself what it is that makes a warrior and a man."

"First viewing - Feb. 15th Mifune Monday The final installment of this trilogy goes out on a strong note, and I am here for it. What most caught my attention with this one, however, is the handful of moments where there's just this perfect shot that's beautiful and the camera lingers on it to let you enjoy it. More of a meditative approach, which makes sense given the themes at play. Of the three films it came the closest to greatness, but didn't quite get there for me. I'd gladly revisit this t"
