Synopsis

Takeshi 'Beat' Kitano takes the lead in this stylish Samurai drama from director Nagisa Oshima ('In the Realm of the Senses', 'Merry Christmas, Mr Lawrence'). Tashiro (Tadanobu Asano) and Kano (Ryuhei Matsuda) are the two newest recruits to the Shinsen-gumi militia, and their development is being closely monitored by second-in-command Captain Hijikata (Takeshi). When Tashiro develops a crush on Kano and decides to approach him, it sets in motion a chain of events which brings the Samurai's barely-acknowledged homosexual subculture to light.
