Dai-bosatsu toge / The Sword of Doom (1966) DVD9 Criterion Collection
Ryunosuke Tsukue (Tatsuya Dakodai), a young samurai in the last days of the Shogunate, is not known for generosity or benevolence. He has a particularly cruel fighting style, which seems inert but allows him to quickly find the weaknesses of his opponents. The cruelty of his fighting is matched by his coldness in other areas of his life, and he exerts his force effectively and often. When he kills a man in a local fencing match, he is driven from his home and takes refuge with the man's wife, working for a political group that appreciates his "silent form." His past and his violent nature begin to catch up to him, pressing him into a series of violent confrontations.
