This action-packed revival of the classic Zatoichi series was directed, written, co-edited by and stars Takeshi Kitano (Battle Royale, Merry Christmas, Mr Lawrence). 

In an empire ruled by fear, the people’s only hope is the ultimate weapon: Zatoichi. A blind, nomadic samurai whose sword has made him a hero and whose courage has made him a legend. Determined to help the desperate residents of a village, Zatoichi seeks justice through revenge.

The winner of the prestigious Silver Lion for Best Director at the 2003 Venice International Film Festival, Midnight Eye called it “pure cinematic magic”.
