In a magnificent performance, Tatsuya Nakadai stars as Hanshiro Tsugumo, a down and out samurai who enters the home of a feudal lord requesting to commit honourable ritual suicide on his property. Suspected of simply fishing for charity, Hanshiro is told, in gruesome detail, the story of the last samurai who made the same request – but Hanshiro is resolute and will not be moved from his original request………..Hanshiro’s story is then told in a series of flashbacks which link him to the previous samurai. Inverness Film Fans are proud to bring director Masakai Kobayashi’s measured, brutal yet artistic masterpiece - acknowledged by many as the greatest Japanese film of the 1960’s - to the big screen at Eden Court.
