 Product Detail

47 Loyal Samurais
aka:Chushingura

Directed by: INAGAKI HIROSHI
Starring: Toshiro Mifune, Takashi Shimura

A young lord attempts to combat the official corruption endemic to the Shogunate, only to be placed in an impossible conflict of duties. He refuses to bribe a Chancelor who is responsible for teaching him the etiquette to receive the Shogun's envoys.

The Chancelor goads him into drawing his sword when the envoys are present, a crime punishable by death. The young lord's vassals are ordered to break up his estate, and his samurai to disband.

To obey the Shogun, they must follow orders, but to be loyal to their master and to elemental fairness, they must revenge him. The conflict of obligations is the essential dilemma of Japanese society, which is why this is their national epic. The story is richly woven.

Worth seeing just for the supremely gorgeous art works, buildings and costumes of 18th century Japan.

Often referred to as the "Gone with the Wind" of the Japanese cinema, it is an unparalleled example of the true samurai spirit.
