Director Miike's 100th film is a stylish samurai adventure with a high body count, Blade of the Immortal follows Manji, a highly skilled samurai who helps a young girl avenge the death of her father.

Running from Fri 8 - Tue 12 Dec.

Manji, a highly skilled samurai, becomes cursed with immortality after a legendary battle. Haunted by the brutal murder of his sister, Manji knows that only fighting evil will regain his soul. He promises to help a young girl named Rin avenge her parents, who were killed by a group of master swordsmen led by ruthless warrior Anotsu. The mission will change Manji in ways he could never imagine...

Creating a universe that transcends period drama, director Takashi Miike has made a film that truly befits the original manga this film is based on. A human drama knitting together a vast range of characters and their complications, it features spectacular fight scenes with a whole array of imaginative weapons, and a climactic battle involving some 300 people that took more than two weeks to film.
