We have been keeping a close eye on the development of Sidney Lexi Plaut's Dark Samurai
for some time now, drawn in by the gorgeous imagery and the presence of Valhalla Rising
producer Lene Borglum on the production team of this hypnotic re-imagining of legendary samurai Miyamoto Musashi with David Sakurai playing the iconic warrior. And with the premiere just around the corner at Camerimage we're proud to offer up the first teaser for the film.
Dark Samurai is inspired by the legend of
Miyamoto Musashi, who was one of the most famous Japanese ronin and
warrior philosophers. This alternate and very visual interpretation of
the fate Musashi is brought into a mixture of a contemporary Yakuza
underworld and a hypnotic Samurai after-life. We flow seamlessly through
life, death, rebirth and the afterlife and challenge our traditional
definition of the past, present and future.
film explores the agonizing and painful emotions that go through the
shattered mind of Musashi, as he desperately tries to hold on to the
only thing he has left - The rapidly fading memories of his undying love
for a woman named, Otsu. A love that for a Yakuza-Samurai is strictly
forbidden and which will prove to have catastrophic consequences.
