Yoji Yamada sure is insatiable, when it come to creating Motion Pictures! The Man is now 85 and still puts a movie out every Year!
The typical japanese Workaholic!
Here we have a wonderful Love-Story that can't be, because the standards and practices condone it.
A Samurai could never marry someone under is Rang, and a Housemaid is completely out of the Question. What do you do, if your an honest Person, who just wants a happy life without much fuss and galore?
Heartbreaking Performances from Nagase and Matsu, you only can root for this pair! He's a charming fellow, with the heart on the right place and she is adorable beyond believe!
Also, one of the realest Fighting scenes in the Samurai-Genre I think.
But it is not a Samurai Movie, it is a Love Story.
Be Aware of that!
Strikes against the Hydra: the nineteenth Head!
