Blade Of The Immortal 35mm
Director. Takashi Miike
Samurai warrior Manji is on the run from assassins loyal to the warlord he has just slain. In an epic showdown with these sword-wielding avengers, Manji manages to slice his way through dozens of combatants but eventually collapses as a result of fatal wounds. An old crone called Yaobikuni, who has lived for more than 800 years, refuses to let Manji perish and she revives him by dripping magical bloodworms into his wounds. These tiny creatures heal Manji and transform him into an immortal protector for hire.
