A magnficent drama,
This review is from: Kagemusha  [DVD] (DVD)
I must admit, this is my first Akira Kurosawa film but I have loved it to bits. The characters are very well portrayed, especially Oda Nobunaga and Takeda Shingen/Kagemusha. This is a must have movie for any samurai fans out there. Many seem to stereotype these kind of movies as samurai films: just westerns but with swords, but Akira Kurosawa's films are epic dramas and can only be classified as an Akira Kurosawa film. Although the subtitles are for the hard of hearing for the English, it is still something that I could easily get used to with this clasic.
