A Duel Tale by Japanese director Sugita Shigemichi stars Nakadai Tatsuya, one of Japan’s greatest living actors, who gives the performance of a lifetime as Shoji Sanosuke, an elderly samurai forced to pick up his sword to protect those he loves in this adaptation of a popular novel by Fujisawa Shuhei. As a ”Heya-zumi” (essentially a freeloader living off his family) Sanosuke has one last chance to help his grandniece escape an arranged marriage with a cruel samurai. Nakadai proves that he ”still has it,” when fate forces him into a deadly duel. This award-winning samurai drama is a tribute to one of the greatest actors to ever graced the silver screen.
