Action and Adventure, Drama, Period and Historical
Japanese (English subtitles)
This acclaimed drama offers a realistic portrait of the lives of the Japanese warrior class in the mid-19th century. Seibei Iguchi is a widowed samurai who is responsible for looking after his clan's food stores. His fellow samurais teasingly call him "Tasogare" ("Twilight") Seibei as he doesn't socialise with them at night and goes home to look after his family instead. However, he proves his fighting skill when defending the honour of an old friend with whom he has become romantically involved. But for them to marry, Seibei must increase his social standing, which he will only achieve if he accepts a more dangerous challenge. Unusually for a samurai film, human drama is favoured over action, director Yoji Yamada fashioning a powerful film from unusual elements.
