Customer Review

on 20 July 2001
In the second part of the trilogy about Miyamoto Musashi - Duel at Ichijoji Temple - Mifune continues his unparallelled swordsmanship. Musashi has matured and travels as a pilgrime devoted to bushido (the way of the warrior). Musashi's road is beset on all sides by warriors struggling as himself to distinguish themselves. By defeating an entire school of samurai Musashi earns the enmity and envy of every samurai in Japan. Parallell to Musashi's accomplishments we're following the struggles of Sasaki Kojiro to distinguish himself. Friends and enemies from Musashi's past resurfaces and makes life miserable for him. All the killing seems to make Miyamoto Musashi long for some peace and quiet but circumstances and fate has other notions about Musashi's future. The epic battle scenes at Ichijoji temple elevates Musashi accomplishments to myth. Mifune is outstanding, as always, and the director Hiroshi Inagaki use stunning photography to capture the thrilling battlescenes. The colors sometimes reminds me of the techniccolor-era. The high-tension drama in Duel at Ichijoji temple makes this film my favorite in the trilogy about Miyamoto Musashi.
