The Twilight Samurai
Cert: 12A Year: 2002 Length: 129 mins Language: Japanese
The old codes of honour are waning in 19th Century Japan seemingly for everyone except Seibei, low ranking samurai, who lives only for his elderly mother and two small daughters. When his childhood sweetheart returns to town, followed by her drunken ex-husband, Seibei takes matters into his own hands.
