nanofrog review is about a different movie
19 January 2019 | by sinful-2See all my reviews

I did not find the other movie that bad though. I believe the movie nanofrog reviewed is Futari no musashi (1960) but I am of course not sure.

No need for me to me to add another long story as sharptongue have reviewed Miyamoto Musashi: Nitôryû kaigen(1963) very precisely.
