Synopsis

Kyoto, XIII siècle : quiconque tente de franchir le pont de Gojoe durant la nuit est systématiquement décapité par ce qui semble être des fantômes, jusqu'aux patrouilles dépêchées par les autorités, tout autant décimées. Ignorant les avertissements de son maître, Kenkei, un ancien guerrier légendaire aujourd'hui reconverti en un pacifiste moine, s'est juré d'apprivoiser les démons de Gojoe. Il découvrira vite que ces prétendus fantômes sont en fait les trois derniers survivants d'un clan aux pouvoirs immenses, qui réclament le trône familial... L'affrontement est inéluctable.

The film tells the story of two Shinsengumi samurai. One of them is Saitō Hajime (played by Kōichi Satō), a heartless killer and the other is Yoshimura Kanichiro (played by Kiichi Nakai), who appears to be a money-grubbing and emotional swordsman from the northern area known as Nambu Morioka. The main storyline is set during the fall of the Tokugawa shogunate, but it is told in a series of flashbacks as two characters reminisce. The themes include conflicting loyalty to the clan, lord, and family.

The film takes place in Japan in the 1860s, a time of cultural assimilation. Two samurai, Munezo Katagiri (Masatoshi Nagase) and Samon Shimada (Hidetaka Yoshioka), bid farewell to their friend, Yaichiro Hazama (Yukiyoshi Ozawa), who is to serve in Edo (present-day Tokyo) under the shogunate of that region. Though the position is desirable, Katagiri voices his concern that a man of Yaichiro’s character is likely to run into trouble. His doubts are assured when the married Yaichiro expresses an intention to indulge in Edo’s sensual pleasures while stationed there.
