Set in seventeenth-century Japan, Musashi Miyamoto dreams of glory on the battlefield, but a twist of fate turns him into a fugitive, leading to salvation through the love of a woman and a priest who guides him towards the path of the samurai; Miyamoto faces hoardes of enemies, thrusting him further along the path to spiritual enlightenment; after leaving the life of a samurai to be a farmer, Miyamoto faces his nemesis one last time.

Very loosely based on Musashi Miyamoto. You get to see Takezo go from a dim wit in the first film, a half wit in the 2nd film, and a slightly clever man in the 3rd. Pretty good character development and lots of foreshadowing. The first was my favorite because practically everyone deceives him.
It's a shame Takezo and Matahachi never met again; I am assuming he was killed when he disguised himself as a bandit to kill Otsu--perhaps Matahachi's family was killed too? We'll never know.

This is amazing story! Definitely Japan's Gone with the Wind. One of the best samurai films ever. It has everything you could want: sword fights galore, fainting women and badass samurai!
