Movie Info

The winner of the Golden Bear Award at the 1963 Berlin Film Festival, director Tadashi Imai's stark samurai drama tells the story of a 20th Century Japanese professional who ponders the prospect of abandoning the tradition that has been in his family for the past 350 years. The Iikura family has lived by the Bushido code for seven generations. Now, it's up to Susumu to determine if the tradition will continue. Recalling the exploits of his forefathers throughout the centuries, Susumu prepares to make the decision that could forever alter the history of his bloodline. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Bushidô zankoku monogatari (Bushido: The Cruel Code of the Samurai)

This is kind of a werid Samurai Film, I found it while looking over the AnimEigo Web Site (www.animeigo.com) which deals in Anime and Samurai Films. Made in 1963 it is about a present time (1963) family and why som much goes bad for this young man in his life. Its because of past generations of Samurai and what each generation did in his familys past. It has some of the great Samurai actors of the sixties in it. And some fighting but very little. Like I said its a very different Samura film, but it would be a good addition to any collection. I can only muster up 3 stars which is very low in the way of Samurai films for me. Don't be confused this is not a kung fu film. 3 Stars
