From one of Japan's premier filmmakers comes the definitive
version of the classic Ghost Of Yotsuya, a story told many times, but never
before like this! This movie features Hasegawa Kazuo, the biggest star of that
era as Tamiya Iemon, a direct retainer of the shogun who is fooled into
believing that his wife was having an affair with their servant.
Forced into poverty by the strict rules of protocol that
governed the samurai era, Iemon's realizes that it is almost impossible to
attain status without having the means to bribe those with the power to make or
break a career.
Things change when the beautiful daughter of a powerful retainer
falls in love with Iemon after he rescues her from a terrible fate.
However, fate is a fickle thing that may come back with tragic
results. The tension builds to breaking point in this magnificent version of the
classic tale based on the renowned Kabuki by Chikamatsu Monzaemon.
Superb special effects and terrific swordplay make this film a
REMASTERED FOR SUPERIOR PICTURE
