Sang-il Lee

Unforgiven 2013 Ken Watanabe

This trailer for Sang-il Lee’s Unforgiven doesn’t have subtitles, but it doesn’t really need them. Especially if you’ve seen the Clint Eastwood-starring version that Lee is remaking. For some reason, I can’t think about that title without picturing Billy Crystal singing “Unforgiven/That’s what you are/You killed everyone/’Cause you’re the star” at Eastwood during the 1993 Oscars. It sums up the movie quite nicely. With this new take (called Yurusarezaru Mono locally) we get Ken Watanabe as a sworn blade of the shogun retiring to a non-violent existence as a rancher before, as always, they pull him back in Pacino-style. It feels appropriately somber and hints at more than enough bloodshed. Check it out for yourself (and if you speak Japanese, please feel free to help us out in the comments section with some subtitles):
