The Reviews for Kiru (1962) 1080p


Minimal almost abstract story of a "Beautiful and Tragic Wandering"Reviewed byChungMoVote: 7/10

The same year he directed the first of the Zatoichi series, Kenji Misumi directed this tale based on a famous novel by Renzaboro Shibata. With an eye for composition, Misumi created an amazing bit of visual cinema.

The story follows the adult life of Shingo, a humble orphan raised by a low ranking samurai. He decides to to wander Japan for three years and returns with an unexpected new skill; he can bring swordsmen to their knees quaking in fear just with a sword pose. This technique, unfortunately brings tragedy to Shingo's family and he ends up wandering in misery after they are killed by jealous samurai.

There are marked similarities with Misumi's later film, "Ken Ki" which is also based on a book by Renzaboro Shibata. Unfortunately in this film, unlike "Ken Ki" and like many other films based on a famous novel, much of the story seems to be told in short hand as if the audience is expected to be familiar with the story and characters already. It's a testament to Misumi's talent that the movie works so well visually, we can forgive the odd jumps in time and the sparse character development. Curious since the movie is unusually short for a Japanese film. By 40 minutes in the movie settles down and everything works much better dramatically. Some of the shots are amazing masterpieces of composition. The action is well done.

If you are looking for more rounded entertainment, I recommend "Ken Ki" over this. That is not to say that this film isn't with rewards of it's own but it's a demanding work to watch.

The DVD I saw had an original trailer for "Kiru". It strangely contains a scene that wasn't in the film. This scene is very interesting as it ends in an extreme bit of action that foretells Misumi's later work with the Lone Wolf series.

The Unkindest CutReviewed bybobliptonVote: 7/10

Master swordsman Raizo Ichikawa comes home to find his sister dead and his father dying. Before that happens, he is old a long story about how his real mother assassinated her husband's evil mistress, fled with a samurai, and was captured by by her clan. No one would kill her, so it fell to her lover, who gave him to the man Ichikawa thought was his father.

It'ss one of those weird movies that the Japanese enjoyed back then, in which people do horrible things to seek vengeance in beautiful surroundings where the birds chirp. It's directed by Kenji Misumi, who would begin directing the Zatoichi series that very year. It's quite lovely and quite alien to my understanding. Perhaps you will get more out of it than I did.

An adoped Samurai living in a shadow of three women !!Reviewed byelo-equipamentosVote: 7/10

Unusual tale of Samurai on late 19th century, a child was adopted by a loyal man at request from his Samurai's clan's boss, when he reach at thirty years old, he asking to his father make a journey to somewhere for three years, backing home his father realize that him became a fabulous and skillful Samurai during the long travel, a jealous neighbor reveal the secret to him, which he actually is an adopted son, then his mother already death was his first shadow, your sister that will be killed afterward, was the second and strange woman that was put in his hands to protect her was killed in onward, all them were killed in some way, so he decide to find out who is his real father, the director made a fascinating minimalist scenes, many close up and the shooting on large empty spaces, birds singing are spreading in some specific scenes on purpose, an unusual score neither, anyway, visually wonderful on bright colors, also he printed a stylish fights, the storyline and the action are fuzzy and a bit slow paced, however won't disappoint anyone who like Samurai's pictures!!!

Resume:

First watch: 2019 / How many: 1 / Source: DVD / Rating: 7.5
