Synopsis

The year is 1866, the twilight of the Tokugawa era. As Japan boldly moves into a new age, one man couldn't possibly care less. That man is Kumosuke Haguregumo, a retired samurai who has since become the town fool. Though he still carries his twin-bladed katana, Kumosuke spends his days smoking, drinking, and womanizing, rarely coming home before dawn. At home, however, wait his wife and two children, Shinnosuke and Ohana, who are constantly troubled by Kumosuke's antics.

As Shinnosuke grows older, he begins to understand the world around him. Troubled by his father's reputation, Shinnosuke attempts to live a life of honor, though finding what honor means in a turbulent era is difficult. As Shinnosuke navigates his relationship with his father, countless other warriors struggle to find their place in the ever-changing world.

This movie is an interesting product of its time. I found it to be an enjoyable watch. I somehow found it in 1080p, which made its unique artstyle pop even more. Nice colors and composition, even a scene with some experimental arthouse animation.
If you want a movie with a compelling story and characters however, you should probably look elsewhere. The only character with much of an arc is the son, Shinnosuke, and maybe Ichimonji. Kumo, although an entertaining character at times, is pretty sexist and just casually abuses his child? (Not to mention, cheats on his wife every chance he can get.) So yeah, read more

A classic it is not, but it is worth a watch, as it's enjoyably bad.
Based on a long running manga series, which started in the seventies and oh yeah, you can tell.
The story is of a lackadaisical courier/swordsman who is a master of a twins blade, but prefers to spend his time cheating on his wife, being a terrible father, drinking sake and not doing his job.
The film is a comedy and manages to be funny at times, while having some truly disturbing scenes.
The film is set at the closing of the edo period, where anti foreigner warriors are at large and shows the main read more
