Overview

This action-packed Japanese samurai film gets an effective presentation for its North American DVD release. Zatoichi: The Adventures of a Blind Man (aka Zatoichi The Blind Swordsman 9: The Adventures of Zatoichi) has been given a letterboxed transfer at its original widescreen aspect ratio of 2.35:1, and the original Japanese language soundtrack has been mastered in Dolby Digital Mono. The disc also features optional English subtitles. Bonus material includes the film's original theatrical trailer and a poster included with the DVD's packaging.Zatoichi (Shintaro Katsu), the blind swordsman, encounters an elderly man who claims to be his long-lost father. The nomadic warrior, who has never had any personal ties to anyone as an adult, believes that he may finally have found a bond with his past. Only later does he discover that the man is an imposter. In contrast to most of the movies in this long-running series, Adventures of a Blind Man, by the very nature of its plot, offers a look into the background of the blind swordsman.
