|ABE CLAN OF HOSOKAWA (1995) - REMASTERED
Abe Ichizoku - In the spring of the 18th year of Kanei (1624
-1644), Hosokawa Tadatoshi, feudal lord of the Higo area died. Although he had
forbidden his vassals to follow him in death before he died, they still
committed seppuku one after the other.
The new feudal lord, Mitsunao, Tadatoshi's son, also gives the
order forbidding seppuku. Abe Yaichiemon obeyed his former lord's last wish but
is now being called a coward by his comrades and finally decides to follow
Tadatoshi in death in order to save his family's honor. Mitsunao, upset by Yaichiemon actions, punishes the Abe family
unfairly. Objecting to this, the Abe family shut themselves up in their manor as
the lords troops moved in.
This is the true story of what happened within the
Hosokawa clan in early Edo era. A masterpiece that boldly depicts the struggle
between humanity and the code of the Samurai.
