Well, I wasn't too fond of the romance aspects but I liked everything else. Very beautiful film. It was a great take on the era of the waning Shogunate. The little details, the village, music and the visuals made the film for me.
Hiroyuki Sanada is one hell of an actor and his performance is the absolute high point of the film though. His character was the very definition of a low-key samurai. The film in general also had a very quiet and subtle feel to it. It was a very relaxing watch.
The ending was a disappointment though, it felt quite pedestrian despite the well set up duel.
Gorgeous, gorgeous film. Hiroyuki Sanada has done some amazing work, but this is by far his best performance.
