Product Details

A duo of chanbara masterpieces from one of the genre’s greatest directors, Hideo Gosha! Out of a desire to make what he felt was a truly no-holds-barred sword-fightingfilm, Gosha took inspiration from the samurai films of Akira Kurosawa as well as the spaghetti Western sub-genre they had inspired. Working with a low budget to free himself from the restrictive oversight of his producers, the result was Samurai Wolf and Samurai Wolf II, which tell the story of a charismatic ronin named Kiba (played by Isao Natsuyagi). In the first film, Kiba wanders into a small town and ends up ensnared in a local conflict that's more than meets the eye. In Samurai Wolf II, Kiba gets mixed up in a complex web of intrigue, involving a crooked goldmine owner, a cynical swordsman and an arrogant dojo master. With stunning black and white cinematography and ultra-stylish action sequences, the Samurai Wolf films are a lean, mean triumph of samurai cinema. The Masters of Cinema series is proud to present both films for the first time ever in the UK on Blu-ray.
