"Famed Japanese auteur Takashi Miike, best known for cult classics "Audition," "Ichi the Killer" and "The City of Lost Souls," redefines the spaghetti western with SUKIYAKI WESTERN DJANGO," an epic tale of blood, lust and greed.

Two clans battle for a legendary treasure hidden in a desolate mountain town. One day, a lone gunman with incredible shooting skills drifts into town. The two clans try to woo the lone gunman to their side, but he has ulterior motives. Dirty tricks, betrayal, desire and love collide as the situation erupts into a final, explosive showdown.

Talented ensemble cast includes: Hideaki Ito, Usuke Iseya, Kaori Momoi and Quentin Tarantino."

Yes, that's right. Quentin Tarantino is in this movie.

The film is in somewhat stilted English (even when Quentin Tarantino is not on screen). I may screen it with the English subtitles anyway.
