Masato Harada (Kakekomi, The Emperor in August) returns with this samurai battle epic based on Ryotaro Shiba’s literary account.

The very name Sekigahara is evocative for anyone who knows anything about Japanese history. It is the site of Japan’s most famous — and most decisive — battle, a watershed event that saw the advent of 250 years of peace and stability. On October 21, 1600, the famous Battle of Sekigahara took place between the Western Army, led by Mitsunari Ishida and the Eastern Army, led Ieyasu Tokugawa. Its outcome would end the Warring States Period (Sengoku Jidai) and determine a ruler for the new era.

A major critical and box-office hit with spectacular battles, byzantine plotting and a cast featuring many of Japanese top actors. Nominated for 10 Japanese Academy Awards including Best Film, Director, Actor and Supporting Actor.
