“Gentle, humanistic, rich with observation, quietly aware of all that can’t be solved by the sword…it has the sturdy bones of a classic…Twilight is Yamada's 67th film as a director, and it has the autumnal, economical perspective of a man with nothing left to prove.”
—Ty Burr, The Boston Globe

“A mature, revisionist, Budd Boetticher samurai epic...Yamada’s wide-screen images are as ripe and sweet as a Sirkian peach…Samurai’s primary blessing is a sense of humane community, where relationships have unexpected depths.” —Michael Atkinson, The Village Voice

A nominee for the Best Foreign Film Oscar® and winner of twelve Japanese Academy Awards, The Twilight Samurai (2002) is a contemplative character study of Seibei (Hiroyuki Sanada), a traditional samurai reduced—in a rapidly modernizing Japan—to working as an accountant. A widower, Seibei has to care for his senile mother and his two young daughters; his financial problems are so severe that he finally, humiliatingly, must pawn his sword. And then, his clan comes to him with one last job. Directed by veteran Yoji Yamada, best known for helming Japan’s beloved “Tora-san” films.
