Sukiyaki Western Django

With more than a nod to spaghetti westerns, Takashi Miike's hip 'sukiyaki western' is inspired by Sergio Corbucci's violent classic, 'Django!'; and despite being set in 12th century Japan, all the actors speak English - albeit as a second language. Hideaki Ito is the black-clad stranger who rides into town amidst two warring clans vying for a rumoured hidden treasure. Which side will the sharp-shooting newcomer join? Starring a who's who of Japanese talent and featuring a cameo from Quentin Tarantino, this is destined for cult status.
