Editorial Reviews

Mizoguchi's last color film was this rich and spectacular epic which examined the conflict between the ruling courts, the powerful monks and the exploited warrior class at the end of the twelfth century. The samurai leaders of the Taira Clan return victorious from fighting for their Emperor. Instead of recognition and reward, they are cheated and dishonored by the high courtiers who do not want to see the samurai warriors empowered. The samurai are forced to choose sides and re-examine their loyalties, ethics, codes of honor and their positions in a changing world.

The last reviewer must've been unlucky enough to get a bad disk, the copy I received works fine.
An excellent film about the transition to samurai rule, well worth a watch.
