  • Critic Reviews
    "The film is tranquil, touching, and, in its climactic sword fight, excitingly real." -- Grade: B+
    Entertainment Weekly

    "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."
    New York Times

    "[I]t's the disarming delicacy of the central romance that provides the biggest pay-off."
