LOOK ONLINE Tieko Saito, 76-year-old owner of a network stripklubov and former dancer, now one of the richest women in the country, known in narrow circles simply as "Mother", was the decisive factor.This influential figure Japanese showbiz and old friend of the late Katsu could persuade Kitano overcome longstanding prejudices and take up his version of "Zatoichi", telling a new story about a blind masseur and swordsman. China agreed, taking the lead role and subject to conditions:write a completely original script, not consistent with a long tradition of publicly favorite films about the famous hero. The main thing to know about Zatoichi, watching any movie about him - not excluding Kitano movie - is that it is not a samurai. Zatoichi - the favorite of farmers, the wanderer and vagabond, Calico turn.He wanders from one village to another, stand up for the victim of injustice, and the same accuracy, is especially striking for the blind, punishes offenders. But he is - not a knight, not an aristocrat, a massage therapist, and he does not have any sovereign, nor the more vassals.Kitano's Zatoichi In addition friendship leads to suspicious antisocial elements - resides at the widow's, friendship with her nephew, and then starts to communicate with a couple dressed geisha. But Zatoichi Kitano generally very strange person. He looks like an alien from another, unknown world.He is dressed in rags, but his staff is smartly stylish cane, within which everything else is hiding deadly edged sword.

Kitano, so subtly deconstruct the phenomenon of violence in his previous films, happy to change yourself. Now deliberately unnatural blood flowing streams, and shedding the blood character impunity and happy.First of all, the desire to read is to make fun of genre cinema, easily sacrificing minor and the more negative character for the good of the main characters. China is not adapted to the rules of the genre and plays with them as a child. "Zatoichi" - the most eclectic films of Kitano.Among the samurai, dressed in all the rage mid XIX century, there is a very strange masseur, and farmers, for no apparent reason begin to dance step by hiphopovy rhythm.That eclecticism performs the function of a permanent observer, critical eye, not to allow any director, nor his audience too carried away by the romance of the samurai.
