ONMYOJI (THE YIN YANG MASTER)
2001, 116 min., color, subtitled
Directed by Yojiro Takita
Written by Yasushi Fukuda, Baku Yumemakura, & Itaru Era

During an age of demons and ghosts in 8th-century Kyoto, the emperor relied 
upon the Onmyoji, masters of Onmyodo who used the yin and yang principle to 
interpret natural and astrological occurrences.  The most talented of the Onmyoji 
order, Seimei (kyogen actor Mansai Nomura) faces off with Doson (Hiroyuki 
Sanada, RINGU and THE LAST SAMURAI), whose dark magic threatens to destroy the 
court.  Based on Baku Yumemakura's novel, which was also adapted by manga, and 
so brought the wildly popular Onmyoji themes into contemporary Japanese popular 
culture.
