"Mukoku" basically talks about the sport that is exclusively Japanese. With  more than 1.66 million practitioners in Japan and a global total of 6  million, kendo is a well-regarded sport that seeks to harness not only  the physical prowess of man, but also to stimulate the spirit and  promote respect for other human beings . Although  there is little resemblance or even "inspiration" taken from any  martial arts film, "Mukoku" is a dark, tragic and yet positive film at  the same time. There is no brightness, something to be  surprising, it is technically good, but it does not excite, in addition  to the kendo theme he still talks about the fact that people can be  malicious and spiteful, there are no heroes or villains just a neutral  movie .

[WARNING: the rating and review I give have the possibility to be subjective due to my preference for the genres, scenes or casts]

To see two of my favorite actor playing in the same movie is such heaven on earth. Both of them have an amazing skill. Ayano's acting was beyond my expectation, his bitterness looks very well.
This movie mostly talk about kendo philosophy, trauma and guilty feeling ... and how they're dealt with it. The best parts for me are when they're fighting in the middle of the rain, and when they're fighting at the dojo.

Honestly, maybe this movie is kinda boring for some people, but I love the martial arts movie, so this is fine with me (^_^)
