A nominee for the Best Foreign Film Oscar® and winner of 12 Japanese Academy Awards, The Twilight Samurai (2002) is a contemplative character study of Seibei (Hiroyuki Sanada), a traditional samurai reduced — in a rapidly modernizing Japan — to working as an accountant. A widower, Seibei has to care for his senile mother and his two young daughters; his financial problems are so severe that he finally, humiliatingly, must pawn his sword. And then, his clan comes to him with one last job. Directed by veteran Yôji Yamada, best known for helming Japan’s beloved “Tora-san” films.
