The Floating Castle
Nobō no shiro
Director: Shinji Higuchi, Isshin Inudō
Cast: Takayuki Yamada, Mana Ashida, Machiko Ono

This award winning movie is loosely based on the siege of Oshi Castle, where Regent Toyotomi Hideyoshi’s army of 20,000 was unable to defeat the castle’s 500 defenders. Led by the beloved Lord Nagachika whose clumsiness hid a sharp intellect and tenacious nature, this was Hideyoshi’s only failure.
Helped by Lord Nagachika’s humorous attitude the castle’s defenders repelled attack after attack before the regent’s forces decided to flood the castle with special effects so realistic that the film’s release was delayed for over a year after the tragic tsunami that hit Japan. This movie also features one of the last performances of the great Natsuyagi Isao best known for his powerful performances in many classic films of Gosha Hideo!

"The Floating Castle" was originally scheduled for release September 17, 2011, but postponed after the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami on March 11th, 2011. The movie features character Hideyoshi Toyotomi who implements a war strategy by using an "attack with water method", which the filmmakers felt might be inappropriate at such a close date to the natural disaster.

2012 Color Anamorphic Widescreen 144 Min.
Japanese with Optional English Subtitles.
