If Kagemusha isn’t as daring as Akira Kurosawa’s other samurai epics, like Seven Samurai or Throne of Blood, then it is still a pleasurable jewel of a late master throwing around his considerable artistry and craft. The troubled birth and production doesn’t show (much), and it is an immensely pleasurable experience throughout. It simmers in its weightiness and epic scope, and Kurosawa still ... read more

"6.4 Erinomainen teos jälleen Kurosawalta. Tarina kahden klaanin taistelusta Sengoku-kaudella, sekä huijarista, kuka omaksuu maineikkaan sotalordi Shingenin identiteetin tämän kuoltua. Ehdottomasti Tatsuya Nakadain uran kohokohta tämän näytellessä sekä maineikaista sotasankaria, että tämän pelkurimaista, vaikkakin hyväntahtoista kaksoisolentoa. Osittain tässä toistui samoja elementtejä, mitä Ran'ssa, mutta paljon on eroavaisuuksiakin. Kurosawan elokuvien loisto ei katoa lainkaan"

"18.11. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Akira Kurosawa Kurosawa was amazing with colours (too) and Tatsuya Nakadai is always awesome, but this film is way too long. Also kind of lost track of who is who and what their motives are at some point but that's more a problem of my stupidity. "

Kagemusha

“If Kagemusha isn’t as daring as Akira Kurosawa’s other samurai epics, like Seven Samurai or Throne of Blood, then it is still a pleasurable jewel of a late master throwing around his considerable artistry and craft. The troubled birth and production doesn’t show (much), and it is an immensely pleasurable experience throughout. It simmers in its weightiness and epic scope, and Kurosawa still manages to pull it off with grace, beauty, and a deft touch that numerous imitators have tried and failed to achieve.   The title refers to a common thief who bears a striking resemblance to a warlord, and he effectively becomes his “shadow warrior,” what kagemusha translates to. This shadow warrior is something a spectral entity, more of an emotional cipher than a fully-realized character” read more
