Samurai Banners Film Poster


Hiroshi Inagaki's penultimate film chronicles the gradual unification of Japan between 1843 and 1861 under warlord Shingen Takeda. Takeda relies heavily upon his adviser, limping former ronin (masterless samurai) Yamamoto (Toshiro Mifune), who, once established, dedicates himself to his new master, even renouncing the woman he loves when Takeda wants her for himself.
