The Twilight Samurai

Sunday 24th October 5:30 PM


The old codes of honour are waning in 19th Century Japan seemingly for everyone except Seibei, low ranking samurai, who lives only for his elderly mother and two small daughters. When his childhood sweetheart returns to town, followed by her drunken ex-husband, Seibei takes matters into his own hands.

Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film, 2004 Oscars


“Terrific, old-fashioned storytelling with a rich sense of time and place”
