Zatoichi- Zatōichi - 座頭市 (2003)

This modern version of the classic Zatoichi movies is made by Takeshi Kitano. As usual, the theme is the blind Zatoichi that comes to the aid of innocent people. It plays in the ancient rural life and gives a good insight of this environment. Very good movie, except for the Japanese tap dance at the end.

The older versions with Katsu Shintaro are pretty cool as well:
