Storyline

Sen Rikyu is a ceremonial tea master who advises warlord Hideyoshi in sixteenth-century feudal Japan. His daughter, the beautiful Lady Ogin, has an unrequited love for Lord Ukon, who has angered Hideyoshi by becoming a Christian convert. Ogin's father Rikyu also displeases Hideyoshi by opposing the warlord's plan to invade China and Korea. When the animalistic Hideyoshi is rejected by Ogin, he threatens her and her father with arrest and worse. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Interesting Film
4 September 2001 | by (Irvine, CA) – See all my reviews

The film appears to be fairly accurate historically. Mifune portrays Hideyoshi who was the great war-lord who unified Japan. After accomplishing that he solves the problem of what to do with his great but idle army by attacking Korea. He also hates Christians because they put God above Hideyoshi.

So that sets the scene for great pomp and gore. Very interesting sets and costumes. Hideyoshi was a great follower of the tea ceremony and that is shown as well as his all gold tea room. All in all he was a terrible despot.
