few questions...

Hello

I have seen Seven Samurai movie few months ago, since that time I have some doubts, and question about relationship beetwen samurais and farmers.
Why there was so many efforts and obstacles from Shino`s father, to destroy her potential relationship with young samurai? Was that kind of relationship banned or condamned in Japan? I would be very grateful for any comments.

Konnichiwa Duncan-san!

This movie "Seven Samurai" has not exact background research, and I can not tell correct answer. But I think there are some reason, samurai is a noble but she is a farmer, samurai is a soldier and will death in battlefield easily, samurai and bandit is the same race. 😌

All the samurai did was kill people (often farmers that didn't bow low enough or that happened to be passing when a blade needed testing as far as I've gathered) and harass farmers and steal their crop. I can see why a farmer would dislike the samurai.
