Killing

Shinya Tsukamoto | 80min | Japan

  • År: 2018
  • Språk: Japanska
  • Text: Engelsk
  • Originaltitel: Zan
  • Svensk Premiär

En annorlunda samurajfilm med drag av Kurosawa, där japansk stridskonst möter en familjs kamp för att hindra sonen att gå ut i krig.

Kultregissören Shinya Tsukamoto, som efter filmer som Tetsuo och Tokyo Fist brukar kallas Japans David Cronenberg, har regisserat sin första epokfilm. Efter 250 långa år med fred hotar ett inbördeskrig att bryta ut i Japan. I väntan på att kunna ansluta sig till shogunen i Edo arbetar samurajen Mokunoshin Tsuzuki på risfälten på en isolerad gård. Parallellt med arbetet tränar han sina stridsfärdigheter med familjens äldste son Ichisuke. Mot familjens protester ansluter de sig båda till en äldre samurajs nybildade stridsgrupp med hopp om att få dra ut i det annalkande kriget. När ett gäng laglösa krigare hemsöker byn startar en våldsspiral som både sätter gruppens stridsfärdighet och Tsuzukis förmåga att döda på prov.

Shinya Tsukamoto

Regissör: Shinya Tsukamoto

Born in Tokyo, Japan on January 1, 1960. He started making films when he was a junior high school student. He graduated from Nippon University, majoring in oil painting. After graduating the university, he was employed by a TV commercial film production.

A young ronin who stares at his sword with ardor. This was the germ of an idea that I'd first had years ago. How will I kill another person with this sword? How can I? Some samurai must have thought that. Even if it's my master's order, how can I bring myself to do it? Wouldn't some of them have thought so? Since no samurai remain, I went to the next best thing, a WWII veteran and asked him if he'd encountered any conscientious objectors. Did he know anyone who'd quit because he didn't want to kill or be killed? His answer: "Becoming a soldier wasn't questioned as it is today. Even if you didn't want to join up, there was no escaping it. War was such an ordinary part of everyone's life that it was simply inevitable. People today must find such a story of samurai incomprehensible."The weight of his words contextualized that single line, "A young ronin who stares at his sword with ardor" and stayed with me.
