Storyline

Tokyo, 1890. Through avarice, a series of misunderstandings, and failures of courage, the engagement of Kan-ichi (a student) and Miya (the daughter of Kan-ichi's debtor) is canceled to enable Miya to marry Tomiyama, a wealthy banker's son. In bitter despair, Kan-ichi breaks with his friends, drops his studies, and declares he has ceased to be human. He apprentices to a money-lender, and he's soon ruthless and wealthy. Several years later, Miya's in misery, her husband mistreats her. She goes to Kan-ichi to beg forgiveness; he pushes her away. He's now pursued by Akagashi, herself a cold-hearted loan shark. Can anything free Kan-ichi's hard heart from the golden demon? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Frustrated love can lead to terrible unhappiness.
15 July 2001 | by (Irvine, California) – See all my reviews

A penniless student and a wealthy man want to marry the same girl in 1890 Japan. The parents naturally think wealth should be chosen but the girl is only convinced after her mother tells

her the wealthy man will finance the student's studies. So the

girl thinks she is making a noble sacrifice by marrying the rich man. This ends up making everyone unhappy until a Hollywood

ending.

The depiction of Japan in 1890 is OK as is the acting. The film seems to be saying follow your heart and not your parents.
