Shochiku Eiga for the Imperial Japanese Government
“History speaks for itself” “Immersion in an ancient and different culture” “Most inspiring movie” “Slow and talky” (IMDB reviews quotes).
A lengthy propaganda epic loosely based on the 18th century tale of samurai whose loyalty to their master transcended his death. Produced for the Japanese military government as a way to instill the public with the so-called Bushido virtues for the impending war. Huge cast and flawless production. IMDB rating 7.5.
