Zatoichi: The Blind Swordsman in May

Arrow Films have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Zatoichi: The Blind Swordsman on 14th May 2007 priced at £15.99. Starring – as well as being written, directed and produced by – Shintaro Katsu, the 26th and final film in the Zatoichi series plays out like a cinematic collection of the legendary swordsman's "greatest hits", accelerating breathlessly from one blood-spurting set-piece to another as the blind hero finds himself caught up in a deadly feud between rival Yakuza clans.

A barebones release, the film is presented in anamorphic widescreen (1.85:1) with Japanese 2.0 audio and optional English subtitles.
