The great Toshiro Mifune stars as an aging swordsman in this gripping Edo-period story of a family that defies their lord’s command in favor of true love—and risks destruction. Director Kobayashi builds the tension to a sword-flashing conclusion in this key work of samurai cinema. We’re playing a 35mm print struck in 2005 from a restored, high-definition digital transfer.
Introduction by Takuya Tsunoda, a Japanese film expert and a PhD candidate in Film & Media Studies and East Asian Languages & Literatures at Yale.
Presented in conjunction with the Katonah Museum of Arts exhibition “Lethal Beauty: Samurai Weapons and Armor” (through Jan. 4, 2015).
