    [Synopsis, Notes]
    A sequel to the popular historical story “Chushingura” that usually ends with the suicides of the forty-seven samurai, the film features two splendid actors, Koji Yakusho who starred in “13 Assassins”, and Koichi Sato, who starred in “Nobody to Watch Over Me”.

    Paying special attention to authenticity, the work is notable for its single-camera location shots of weighty length. Kichiemon (Koichi Sato) was unable to die an honorable death, whilst Magozaemon (Koji Yakusho) disappeared the night before the raid. Sixteen years later, the two reunite. They had both received secret orders to stay alive from Kuranosuke Oishi (Nizaemon Kataoka).
