Harakiri

Peace in 17th-century Japan causes the Shogunate's breakup of warrior clans, throwing thousands of samurai out of work and into poverty. An honorable end to such fate under the samurai code is ritual suicide, or hara-kiri.

A devastating, emotionally intense critique of the feudal system s hypocrisy and the warrior s code.

The film has a steady, hypnotic momentum; the director, Masaki Kobayashi, wrings as much drama out of facial twitches as he does out of sword fights.

It would be wrong for me to reveal the details of the story Tsugumo tells. What I can say is that it is heartbreaking.

This is an amazing Japanese classic written and filmed without flaw. The action unfolds in story-telling within story-telling. This is a film about truth. Whose truth? That is the unfoldment. In a perverted way, this amazing piece of work has become predictive of Western corporate banking. Perhaps you'll see what I mean at the end of the film.

Definitely an essential film.---To say that Seppuku is an incredible film is not only a massive understatement, but a disgrace to anyone who appreciates great cinema. Seppuku, in fact, is one of the finest films I've had the pleasure of watching.In the early minutes of the film we are introduced to a young samurai who arrives at the abode of a feudal lord. Upon his arrival he reveals that he would like to take part in hara-kiri -- an act in which a samurai will commit suicide witnessed by their peers. It's an act where, once agreed upon, there is no turning back. The feudal lord questions why this specific samurai would want to partake in hara- kiri, but his questions only raise further mystery.Directed masterfully by Masaki Kobayashi (Kaidan, Samurai Rebellion), he provides over two hours of a gripping samurai tale which remains breathtaking throughout. His action scenes aren't overdone by resorting to quick shots to compensate for a lack of on-screen action. They're done to allow the swordplay feel authentic. It's clear that these scenes were carefully orchestrated as these become the most memorable scenes in the film."Seven Samurai" is often regarded as not only the best film to be released in Japan, but one of the finest films of all time, but Seppuku always seems to be cast in its shadow. Seppuku is every bit as good as Seven Samurai but provides a more intriguing story. The comparison seems obvious, but this film deserves to be put on the same lists that Seven Samurai makes year after year.Coming in at 2 hours and 15 minutes, there are no "filler" scenes that normally bog down longer films. Every scene knows precisely why it's there... because it should be. It does this without it seeming overlong and balances the mystery, drama and action quite nicely.I rated the film a 10/10 as can be seen on the top but this film is too nice, I'm going to rate it twice.10/10
