"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 .
