Movie Info

In 1928, Masahiro Makino -- one of the first great Japanese directors -- released the very first samurai film with Roninkai - Daiichiwa Utkushiki Emono . In 1990 Masahiro Makino's grandson Kazuko Kuroki remade this samurai epic. The film opens in a run down roadhouse called the Murata when a scruffy ronin (a masterless samurai) named Aramaki Gennai (Yoshio Harada) tries to dine and dash. He's stopped by the establishment's burly bouncer (played by Zatoichi star Shintaro Katsu). Insults threaten to escalate into violence until a samurai (Renji Ishibashi) calls them fools and throws a couple gold coins their way. Realizing their foolhardiness, the two antagonists drop their swords and soon the three are fast friends. However, the trio soon find themselves rivals for the attention of a beautiful prostitute called Oshin (Kanako Higuchi). When it becomes clear that she favors Gennai, a rash of courtesan murders occurs. Can the three stop the killer before Oshin is the next victim? ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
