2 2 6: The Four Days of Snow and Blood
Directed by: GOSHA HIDEO
Starring: Ken'ichi Hagiwara, Tomokazu Miura, Nakadai Tatsuya, Tamba Tetsuro

Ni Ni Roku - Based on the "2.26 Incident", an attempted coup d'état in Japan 1936. This is Gosha Hideo’s tribute to these idealistic young officers who rebelled against the direction pursued by the Emperor and his advisors during the war in China. A fascinating glimpse into the spectacular failure of restraint that led to the bloody war in the Pacific.

2-2-6 refers to the date of the rebellion, February 26, 1936. With a cast of hundreds of Japan's finest actors, Gosha recreates the conflict between the hyper-militaristic faction and, perhaps, the last sane group of soldiers in the Emperor's Army. It was a climate of suspicion, when those who dared speak against the rise of the military state were brutally assassinated, with several leading politicians killed and the center of Tokyo briefly held by the insurgents before the coup was suppressed.

Many may not be aware that during the 1930s a very covert civil war was going on in Japan and no government minister (and almost no military general officer) was safe from it. The conflict was chiefly between those who wanted to take over and exploit whatever parts of Asia could be conquered, and those with some sense of the limitations of this policy (whether they approved of it or not).
