This movie rocks
This movie should not be compressed into 2 hours. The 80 dollar DVD box set that I bought is totally worth it. 9 hours, on five discs, its a great film, and you should watch it all at once. The narrator does a great job of, well, narrating, but the voice is perfect for the setting, and so is the music. The film is very convincing of the surroundings and of the times. I am very pleased with the balance of fiction and historical accuracy portrayed in this film. The book should also be read, if you've the time or patience. The film "The Last Samurai" is reminiscent of James Clavell's work, I suggest you see that movie also. The portrayal of a Dutch crew and their captain first reaching Japan, while fiction, the reactions and manner in which Blackthorne is received could be torn from the pages of history.
