Japan’s most famous historical incident was the revenge of the 47 ronin, when the former retainers of Lord Asano’s Ako clan avenge their late master’s unjust death. While waiting for the right time to launch the revenge attack, Sugino, one of the former vassals has the good fortune to meet Tawaraboshi Genba, Japan’s foremost lancer who takes it upon himself to teach the young ronin the art of spear fighting. This side story of the Chushingura features tremendous performances by some of the biggest stars in Japanese cinema, Kataoka Chiezo as Genba and Okawa Hashizo as Sugino! A major motion picture with an all-star cast and a timeless tale is a must see!
