COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS
Cast (feature film)
The Buddhist monk Sen-no Rikyu, tea master to the warrior Hideyoshi Toyotomi, is forced to commit hara-kiri after disagreeing with Toyotomi's plan to invade China.
The story is based on the historic Bunraku puppet play about star-crossed lovers.
A woman and her daughter are raped and murdered by soldiers during a time of civil war. Afterwards, a series of samurai returning from the war through that area are found mysteriously dead with their throats torn out. The governor calls in a wild and fierce young hero, to quell what is evidently a ghost. He encounters the two beautiful women, in an eery, beautiful scene. After spiritual purification, he meets the demon in a thrilling fight.
