Uzumasa raimuraito (Uzumasa Limelight)
Imdb Code: 3290882
Release date: 2014-11-24
Director: Saprul Movie
Age restriction: 13
The film centers an aged movie extra who specializes to be killed in samurai movies without ever being lit by the limelight. Using Charlie Chaplin's film Limelight as an underlying theme, the admirable story of Seiichi Kamiyama dealing with a new generation and fading craftsmanship is told with melancholy and soul.Tweet

A cri de coeur on the samurai flicks of a bygone era, "Uzumasa Limelight" unfolds understatedly and movingly like something from Clint Eastwood at the top of his game.
