Considered by many critics to be the best and most realistic films about the ninja, the Shinobi no Mono saga spans the turbulent years of 1573-1615, and tells the story of the ninja who lurked behind the scenes while warlords strived for power. In one of his most famous performances, the iconic Raizo Ichikawa portrays two famous ninja (Goemon Ishikawa and Saizo Kirigakure), each one with his own agenda, each one with a dark past and no certain future.
