    The Meat is worth the Cheese

    Created: 23/04/09
    This movie is somewhat typical of the "Samurai" movies of the same era in Japanese film making, the main exception being where the sympathies of the filmmakers lay. Samurai barely play into the movie at all, except for the scenes with Oda Nobunaga. They are usually portrayed as arrogant aristocracy, with the ashigaru (foot soldiers) and ninja doing most of the fighting and dying (the one Samurai shown to be calm and reflective is Toyotomi Hideyoshi, who should have been a bit older, and uglier, considering Nobunaga calls him "monkey"). The ninja techniques shown are as accurate as anyone could wish for, especially after 500 years of history. Also, the portayal of Oda Nobunaga as a tyrant was somewhat of a shift from popular Japanese mythology, where he is still revered as the founder of a unified Japan. His ill treatment of "Saru" Hideyoshi is well documented, as are his frequent rages. There is quite a bit of "hollywood" romance and intrigue, but the authentic portrayal of Sengoku Period Japan is well worth the cheese factor.
