After the action-packed swordplay spectacular 13 Assassins, the prolific Miike Takashi delivers a very different type of samurai film for his follow-up. Like Assassins, Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai is a re-imagining of a classic film that integrates new twists on an old-school tale. Renowned kabuki star Ichikawa Ebizo takes on a rare film role, playing a ronin whose request to commit hara-kiri reveals a larger plan that is over a decade in the making. In addition to Ebizo, Miikes low-key & powerful samurai drama also stars Yakusho Koji (13 Assassins), Eita ( Wild 7), Mitsushima Hikari ( Love Exposure), & Takenaka Naoto ( Azumi). Like Kobayashi Masakis 1962 original, Miikes remake (which was shot in 3D) also participated in the competition section of the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.

Unable to withstand the shame of poverty, a ronin (a master-less samurai) named Tsugomo goes to the House of Iyi & requests for permission to commit suicide in the houses courtyard. Assuming that Tsugomo is simply bluffing for money, the Iyi houses chief retainer Saito (Yakusho Koji) tells him the story of Matome (Eita), a young ronin who tried to make money to save his sick wife (Mitsushima Hikari) & had his bluff called. However, Tsugomo remains insistent & begins telling his own story to Saito, revealing his true reason for needing to commit suicide.

This edition features both the 3D & 2D version of the film. It

making of, stage events, trailers, & other bonus features.

Note: 3D television, 3D Blu-ray player, & 3D glasses are required to view the 3D version of the film.
