BLOODY SPEAR AT MT. FUJI

Tomu Uchida, Japan, 1955, Arrow Films, Arthouse

Praised by Japanese film critics and much admired by his contemporaries Akira Kurosawa and Yasujiro Ozu, Tomu Uchida somehow remains little-known in the West. His 1955 masterpiece BLOODY SPEAR AT MT. FUJI is an excellent entry point for the newcomer.

Set during the Edo period, BLOODY SPEAR is a tragicomic road movie following a samurai, his two servants and the various people they meet on their journey, including a policeman in pursuit of a thief, a young child and a woman who is to be sold into prostitution.
