Blade of the Immortal


To save her life he will take a thousand others.

Based on the Japanese manga of the same name, BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL is the story of a fearsome samurai, Manji (Takuya Kimura), who becomes cursed with immortality after a legendary battle. Haunted by his sister’s brutal murder, only by slaying 1000 evil men will he free himself from the curse and regain his soul. Manji also promises to help a young girl avenge her parents, who were killed by a group of swordsmen led by a ruthless warrior. BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL features awe inspiring swordfights, brilliant choreography, and director Takashi Miike’s trademark wry humour.
