The Twilight Samurai

Netflix delivered another DVD which  we watched tonight - The Twightlight Samurai, reviewed in the NY Times.

It's the story of a samurai who is not a warrior but a bookkeeper for his clan.  The time is the mid-1800's.  He is a widower who loves his sweet daughters and aging mother.  When a childhood sweetheart reappears as a divorced woman - the old flame still burns for both of them.

As the title implies, there is some fighting, but not a lot and the fight at the end of the movie is as much conversation as it is sword fight.

I give it a B+
