    If you think this is a boring slow movie, then you don't know how to enjoy a Japanese movie. I loved it from the beginning to the very end. I totally recommend to watch it. In fact I think It became one of my favorite Japanese movies. 5 years 9 months ago

    In fencing, like in art, everything is a distance issue. Distance here is perfect.
