THE BLIND SWORDSMAN`S VENGEANCE (zatoichi`s vengeance; zatoichi no uta ga kikoeru) (1966 JAPAN) D: TOKUZO TANAKA W: HAJIME TAKAIWA
Shintaro Katsu return as the blind masseur Zatoichi. He rids a town of hoodlum yakuza and befriends a kindly prostitute (Meyumi Ogawa). I`m a Zatoichi fan so naturaly enjoyed it`s stylish sword duels and heavy chambra melodrama, but if you couldn`t care less about the character then you won`t find anything new here to change your mind. A good first film for the uninitiated too. With Kei Sato, Jun Hamamura, Shigeru Amachi, Mitsuko Yoshikawa, Kazunari Doi, Hajime Kimura and Saburo Date. Followed by ZATOICHI`S PILGRIMAGE.
