A beautiful samurai film from Takashi KOIZUMI (Assistant to Akira Kurosawa, “After the Rain”) about a samurai who lead his country to fight against the new regime with honor and dignity. The film may provide some answers to the question, “What is a Samurai?”, “What can we learn from them” in the modern era today. In order to present the texture of a samurai period, the film was mostly shot in 35mm.
