(Shinobi no Kuni, 忍びの国)

Mumon (Satoshi Ono) is an invincible shinobi of the Iga ninja clan. Despite his lazy nature he is eager to seek money to keep his wife Okuni (Satomi Ishihara) happy.  In the deadly war against the imperious warlords, the Nobunaga clan, Mumon leads the Iga family to battle with a secret plan and some of the most cunning and unimaginable tactics.

A popular and versatile director known for his offbeat dramas, Yoshihiro Nakamura takes on the jidaigeki (period drama) epic, uncovering the untold nature of the ninja and featuring a host of fantastical action sequences.
