A widower, he has charge of two daughters (whom he adores) and a senile mother; he must therefore work in the fields and accept piecework to make ends meet. New prospects seem to open up when Tomoe, his long-time love, divorces a brutal husband. However, even as the Japanese feudal system is unraveling, Seibei remains bound by the code of honour of the samurai and by his own sense of social precedences. The consequences are cruel.

Twilight Samurai- a wonderful & profound film
Twilight Samurai exemplifies the commitments of duty and sacrifice to one’s children and one’s community. The father -Seibei Iguchi- struggles between the honor he owes to his family and the demands of his work & fiefdom in feudal 16th century Japan. His character is not one of superficial envy engaging in many swordfights and long action sequences, instead this story seems to be as realistic as possible and profoundly moving as the viewers heart can help but go out to Iguchi in his struggle. This is an excellent film for any age or nationality to enjoy. I highly recommend Twilight Samurai It is already one of my all- time favorite films.
