Film 1 - Chushingura (Samurai Champloo)
SOM 111 Ching Tan Room
2:00-4:30 p.m.

Synopsis of the Film:
In 1701 (by the Western calendar), Asano Naganori attacked Lord Kira   
Kozenosuke with his sword in the Edo Castle after Lord Kira had   
taunted the young, usually mild-mannered Asano. Although Lord Kira's   
wound was superficial, Asano was ordered by the Shogun to commit   
seppuku - or suicide. Lord Kira, an important retainer of the imperial  
  household, did not receive any reprimand. Asano's land and all the   
possessions of his family were confiscated.

Thus all his former retainers became Ronin (samurai with no lord). In   
1702, the 46 Ako Ronin (one was already dead), led by Oishi Kuranosuke  
  (Asano's chief adviser) came back to revenge on their fallen lord   
against Lord Kira and were victorious.

The 46 Ronin were ordered to commit seppuku later by the Tokugawa Shogunate.

Synopsis of the Film:
The days of the samurai are almost over now, duels are forbidden, and   
the sword is no longer an object of respect. Since the death of his   
wife, Seibei has to singlehandedly take care of two young daughters   
and his sick mother with just 50 bales of rice a year. Seibei wishes   
he could live a peaceful life as a peasant instead of a poor one as a   
samurai. However, things take another turn when a childhood   
sweetheart, Tomoe, comes back to life in the village. Destiny has  
separated them many years ago, and now they  might have a chance to  
start something new...
