Audience Reviews for Ten To Chi To (Heaven and Earth)

What a great use of film & color shot in 55mm film (if I'm not wrong) this film posesses quality, set in feudal Japan you can see how a film like this has raised the standards in movie making for any of todays Asian cinematographers. I feel the influence from Ran passing it to Heaven & Earth leading it to Hero for some od reason...

Passion and plot and humanity take backseats to pageantry in this samurai spectacular based on the two most legandary warriors of the Sengoku-Jidai. Takeda and Kagetora can't be anything less than mythic, and the film doesn't give them a chance to be, lingering on them only long enough for them to marvel in silence at the beauty of a cherry blossom or issue curt orders sending thousands of men to their deaths. But the spectacle is all in this, a film or vast spaces and great beauty.

"Heaven and Earth" is a timeless story of conflict. I think anyone who likes war movies will like it.
