Set in the late nineteen century as the feudal Shogun period was giving way to the Meiji Restoration , Seibei Iguchi (Hiroyuki Sanada) is a low-ranking samurai of the Unasaka clan in Shonai Province of northeast Japan. His wife has died of tuberculosis, and with two daughters, Kayano and Ito, and an elderly mother to support, he and his family must survive in austerity. The moment his daily work as a clerk in one of the clans warehouses is over, he hurries home, refusing to drink or eat with fellow samurai. Behind his back, his fellow samurai teasingly call him "Tasogare Seibei (Twilight Seibei)." The divorce of his childhood friend Tomoe (Rie Miyazawa) leads him into a confrontation with her violent ex-husband, a high-ranking samurai. When word of Seibei's easy victory using only a wooden sword begins to circulate, his reputation for swordfighting prowess begins to change his colleagues assessment of him. Just as Seibei begins to dream that despite his impoverishment he might win the hand of the long loved Tomoe, he is caught in the shifting turmoil of the times and is assigned, against his wishes, by his superiors to confront and kill a renowned warrior on the wrong side of a clan power struggle.

And I have done it again, not quite sure why it put it in All Things Japanese again, because I was in Movie section when I hit New Thread. Dunno? :mad:

Anyways please move to the movie section.
Since it is a movie dominated bu guy characters, the director picked a very beautiful actress to play the only important female role in the movie.
Rie Miyazawa's beauty is stunning. (Both body and face). 😍 She's half Dutch and half Japanese. Yum yum. 😊
