Shinobi: Heart Under Blade is a Japanese ninjutsu romance movie based on the novel The Kouga Ninja Scrolls by Futaro Yamada. This 2005 film adaptation is set in 1614 and the story depicts the clash between two ninja clans, Iga and Koga, and the fated love between the two young heirs Gennosuke Koga (Joe Odagiri) and Oboro (Yuki Nakama).
It’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon meets Romeo & Juliet – both breathtaking and heart-breaking as the Shogun forces these ancient enemy clans into battle.
