Director Hirokazu Koreeda turns the popularly held conventions of the typical samurai revenge tale on their head with this story of a man whose quest to avenge the death of his father gradually takes a back seat to his emerging role as a key figure in the community. The year is 1702, and young samurai Sozaemon Aoki (Junichi Okada) has arrived in Edo to seek revenge against Jubei Kanazawa (Tadanobu Asano). Kanazawa is the man responsible for the death of Aoki's father, and now it's up to the grieving swordsman to settle the score. When Aoki begins teaching the children of Edo to read and write, however, his bloodlust slowly begins to subside as he comes to realize the true value of his useful place in society. Upon falling in love with the beautiful Osae (Rie Miyazawa), Aoki comes to realize that although the sword may be a powerful symbol of strength, allowing oneself to fall victim to its savage allure may not always be the best way to realize one's true heroism

"Dans un Japon médiéval, à l'ère Edo, à une époque où règne la paix et où les Samouraï n'ont plus de raison d'être, Aoki Sozaemon, a juré à son père sur son lit de mort de le venger. Mais dans cette période où les guerres se font rares, la vengeance d'un samouraï a un peu perdu de sa signification. Elle n'est plus qu'un sujet de théâtre que les villageois regardent avec amusement. Pour Sozaemon, se libérer de ce joug serait un grand soulagement et la certitude de se rapprocher de la jeune veuve dont il brigue la main. Mais son clan ne le voit pas de cet œil."
