Help me find a movie

Postby AusS2000 » Thu Jul 02, 2015 3:41 am

I was on a JAL flight from Tokyo to Sydney in September 2012 and I was watching a period chambara movie. It was about a civil war or insurrection between rival groups.

The only distinguishing features I remember was that one side enlisted the help of some indigenous tribe or clan and in the end betrayed them. And that there were some very effeminate court officials that turned out to be extremely good with a sword, regardless of the kimonos and makeup.

I've been trying to find this movie for years but had no luck. I'm guessing it was a recent release (>2010) but could be wrong.

Any help you can give would be most appreciated.

It's a long shot, but could it have been Sukiyaki Western Django?

It may not fit your description entirely, but it's worth checking!

Nope, not the one. This was definitely Edo period so no revolvers.

Thanks anyway.

I watched them a while ago so I can't remember the details but Shinobi: Heart Under Blade and Azumi came to mind when reading your post, at least in part
