Fencing Master Film Poster


Classic Japanese martial arts drama written by acclaimed film-maker Akira Kurosawa. The art of samurai sword fighting is becoming a fast-receding memory in an ever-modernising 20th-century Japan. But one man, Danpei (Utaemon Ichikawa), an ageing fight choreographer for theatre productions, determines to keep the tradition alive - even if it means paying the ultimate price for his passion.
