Tokkan – One of the rarest and least well-known works of Master Director and Writer, Okamoto Kihachi.
This amazing movie tells the story of Sentaro, a young man who joins a local militia called ‘The Raven’s Corps’ to help fight the Satsuma-Choshu troops during the Boshin War. But his friendship with a pickpocket from Satsuma, who switches sides whenever it suits his needs, leads to complications that could cost Sentaro his life as they infiltrate enemy lines in an attempt to reach Aizu Territory for a last stand.A brilliant mixture of violence and humor, as Sentaro looks for and finds adventure during perilous times. With a brief cameo from mega-star Nakadai Tatsuya as Hijikata Toshizo of the Shinsengumi.
