an exquisitely crafted melodrama, moving with stately grace toward an understated yet forceful quest for revenge.
The winner of three Japanese Academy Awards, Love and Honor depicts the emotional intensity of an age when respect was more valuable than riches and love cut more truly than any sword. The final film in director Yoji Yamada’s Samurai Trilogy (Twilight Samurai, The Hidden Blade), Love and Honor is “an exquisitely crafted melodrama, moving with stately grace toward an understated yet forceful quest for revenge.” – Jeff Shannon, the Seattle Times
Shinnojo Mimura is a samurai sharing a hand-to-mouth existence with his beautiful wife. While working a modest position at a feudal lord’s castle, a freak accident takes the warrior’s sight. His status and pride lost, Shinnojo is cursed to a life of darkness, bereft of hope. Yet one path lies open for redemption: that of the true and noble samurai.
