Hara Kiri: Death of a Samurai

INFO

A mysterious samurai arrives at the doorstep of his feudal lord, requesting an honorable death by ritual suicide in his courtyard. The lord threatens him with the brutal tale of Motome, a desperate young ronin who made a similar request with ulterior motives, only to meet a grisly end. Undaunted, the samurai begins to tell a story of his own, with an ending no one could see coming. The latest film from visionary auteur Takashi Miike (13 ASSASSINS), HARA-KIRI: DEATH OF A SAMURAIis a thrilling exploration of revenge, honor, and individuality in the face of oppressive power.
