As time passes, Munezo’s sister marries Samon, his mother dies, Kie is married into a merchant family, and he is required to learn western methods of warfare such as the use of artillery and firearms from an official sent from Edo. Learning that Kie is ill due to abuse, he rescues her from her husband’s family. Although sharing mutual affection and respect, a marriage between Munezo and Kie is still impossible due to different castes, and when he, now a bachelor, is criticized for her serving in his house, Munezo sends her back to her father’s farm. After being caught in a failed political intrigue, Yaichiro is sent home in disgrace and imprisoned in solitary confinement. After Yaichiro escapes, Munezo is ordered to prove his innocence from complicity by killing his old friend, and he seeks the help of his old teacher, the sword master Kansai Toda.

Wonderful return to the themes of Tasogare seibei
I was watching this film in plane while returning from Japan. I noticed there is Yoji Yamadas’ latest film showing, so naturally I went off watching it. The film has very beautiful sceneries and the music and atmosphere is really nice. The camera-work is usual style of Yoji Yamada. It hides more than shows. Acting is good, especially Masatoshi Nagase (Stereo Future) acts surprisingly well as a strong minded, modest samurai. I was personally surprised the choice of Takako Matsu. But since she has proved herself in her earlier films such as Shigatsu Monogatari, I knew to expect a good result from her. The plot follows pretty much the same line with Tasogare Seibei and it doesn’t offer much surprise. Yet, I rate this movie 9, since it has the wonderful style of Yoji Yamada. It is a great samurai movie, and Masatoshi Nagase fans will not be disappointed.

Slow and deliberate–and quite beautiful.
“The Hidden Blade” isn’t necessarily that unusual. Lots of Japanese movies are set in the early years of the Meiji era–just after the country was opened up to foreign trade around the year 1860. It was a truly revolutionary period and this isn’t surprising. And, there are lots of films that show the corruption of the Shoguns and local bosses that call into question the morality of the Code of Bushido. So in this sense the movie is not all that unique. However, it is handled so beautifully and deliberately that I was very, very impressed by the film.

The film concerns a samurai named Munezô Katagiri (Masatoshi Nagase). He’s a good man who seems out of place. He doesn’t see himself as superior to the lower classes and actually loves a woman from the lower caste. However, being a good samurai, he doesn’t act upon this love–it simply wouldn’t be allowed. This bothers him but he follows the unwritten rules of society. However, when he sees his leaders behaving in very dishonorable ways, he is stuck. While he agrees to kill a rogue samurai (who was his friend), the motives of his family’s leaders disgust him. How will he handle this and his love for a woman who he cannot marry? See this lovely film and find out.

“The Hidden Blade” has a lot going for it. It isn’t just some action film (in fact, there is an amazingly small amount of action), but it’s both a love story and a film about moral dilemmas. What I liked about this most was the wonderful pacing, direction and music–it all worked together wonderfully and is a film that really, really impressed me. Beautiful and well worth seeing.
