Stop the press, hold the phone - and generally just quit what you’re doing - if you are a Miiki fan....in the UK. His latest work, Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai, a remake of Masaki Kobayashi’s 1962 cult classic, is getting a limited theatrical release next month, May 4th and then drops onto DVD a few days after! Either way you'll be able to get another fix, of the master in action. Can't wait!
Synopsis: Poverty stricken samurai Hanshiro Tsukumo (Ebizo Ichikawa) requests to commit ritual suicide at the House of Ii, run by obstinate Lord - Kageyu Saito (Koji Yakusho), in a desperate attempt for a honourable end. In an effort to persuade Hanshiro to rethink his request, Kageyu tells the tragic story of a similar plea from young ronin Motome (Eita). Hanshiro is stunned by the horrifying details of Motome's fate, but insists on dying with honour. With his final breath, Hanshiro makes a last request which results in the shocking revelation of a bittersweet tale of vengeance against the house of a feudal lord.
