This review is from: Lost Treasures Of The Ancient World: Samurai Japan [DVD] (DVD)`Samurai Japan' is a low budget documentary exploring the life and history of Japan. This makes use of rather basic computer graphics to illustrate various forms of architecture, which is supplemented with beautiful wood-block paintings and film of temples in Japan. This looks at Japan from the indigenous Ainu right up until the second world war, although the last hundred years or so are rushed through in a matter of minutes. This is an interesting documentary for enthusiasts of Japan and provides a succinct history in just over 50 minutes. This also looks at Buddhism in Japan, and the tea ceremony, amongst other things. This is quite basic in production style, but offers a good introduction to this fascinating and beautiful country.
