In feudal Japan, Lord Asano rules his province with fairness. However, jealous Lord Kira (Tadanobu Asano) fears that the shogun favors Asano over him and hatches a plot that ends with Asano's ritual suicide. After Asano's death, his samurai, led by Oishi (Hiroyuki Sanada), are forced to live as outcasts.

    I enjoyed watching the movie. I guess you have to be Japanese to appreciate everything. So much good was last by the critics. I saw another movie reviewed by the critics that the critics gave me a false impression of what it was about and I definitely would not see it again.
