Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 06/30/2006
"The film is tranquil, touching, and, in its climactic sword fight, excitingly real." -- Grade: B+
New York Times - 06/23/2006
"By taking samurai-movie conventions and placing them in the harsh light daily survival...Mr. Yamada is illuminating the twilight of an entire way of life."
Sight and Sound - 08/01/2006
"[I]t's the disarming delicacy of the central romance that provides the biggest pay-off."

Product Description:

Set in the mid-19th century, HIDDEN BLADE follows a samurai named Yaichiro on a journey away from his family and to Edo, Japan. Needed there for work, Yaichiro has no choice but to leave his loved ones behind to be looked after by his close friends and fellow samurais Munezo and Samon. What happens in his absence forms the substance of the film.
