Feudal Japan garnished with Eighties cheese


Despite its layers of ’80s cheese, this delicately-paced mini-series packs considered performances and sweeping heroic scenes that weave a vibrant tapestry, alive with romance, honour and more than a hint of melodrama.

Over 12 hours long, this five-disc set is a near-perfect paradigm of Stilton-flavoured, epic storytelling.
