New Trailer & UK Release Dates Drop for The Samurai
Hot off it’s successful festival circuit run, THE SAMURAI has recently released a new trailer and dropped some release dates. Sorry, but THE SAMURAI is only set to release in the UK for now. THE SAMURAI is written and directed by Till Kleinert and stars Michel Diercks, Pit Bukowski, Uwe Preuss, Michael Schumacher, and Ulrike Bliefert. Check out the plot crunch:
A samurai-wielding figure wearing a white dress lurks menacingly in the forest, waiting to descend upon an unsuspecting village in the muddy backwaters of rural East Germany. As heads roll with each stroke of his sword, dutiful, straight-laced cop Jakob becomes increasingly powerless to resist the draw of the Samurai’s feral otherness. The two enter into a bizarre folie à deux as Jakob is forced to confront his own carnal impulses that he has long sought to repress.
Sounds intriguing. THE SAMURAI is slated to hit DVD and have an On Demand release on April 13, 2015 in the UK. No word yet on a North American release. Here’s the trailer. What do you think?
