I was disappointed, I'm afraid to say. Cloud of Sparrows was a samurai tale with a few hints of the supernatural; Autumn Bridge on the other hand is little more than a Japanese ghost story. The actual fight scenes & depiction of the samurai are few and far between; all the energy is devoted to an attempt to link past and present the n a disconcerting shuffle. Should've been called A Tale Of Two Ghosts, and left at that.
Or A Tale Of Two Ghosts, And A Little Bit Of Genji.
