Manji, a highly skilled samurai, becomes cursed with immortality after a legendary battle.

Japan | 141 min | R | DCP | Dir. Takashi Miike | Japanese w/ English Subtitles

Manji, a highly skilled samurai, becomes cursed with immortality after a legendary battle. Haunted by the brutal murder of his sister, Manji knows that only fighting evil will regain his soul. He promises to protect a young girl named Rin and help her avenge her parents, who were killed by a group of master swordsmen led by ruthless warrior Anotsu. The mission will change Manji in ways he could never imagine... the 100th film by master director TAKASHI MIIKE.

"Miike retains his twisted sense of humor, with mangling and disemboweling deployed for comic effect. And after 99 movies, he certainly knows how to make action memorable." - Noel Murray (Los Angeles Times)
