Plot

Set sometime in the late Muromachi period, Naomitsu Hatakeyama (Shun Oguri) is the second son of the distinguished Hatakeyama family. His lifelong friend and and love interest is Ako-hime (Yuki Shibamoto). When Ako-hime's father dies, Yoshimasa Ashikaga (Kenichi Hagiwara) elicits a decree that will forever change their fates.

Soon afterwards, Naomitsu is betrayed by his very own brother Nobutsuna Hatakeyama (Hiroyuki Ikeuchi), who plans to forcibly take Aho-hime for himself. Naomitsu loves Ako-hime so much that he is ready to give up his life and flee into the mountains with Ako-hime. While travelling through the mountains, Naoitsu soon faces another betrayal, this time from retainer Sakuramaru (Kei Tanaka), a man Naomitsu once saved from death and took care of like a brother.

Naomitsu Hatakeyama then comes back as Tajomaru ....

Quan It's a fairy tale -- sort of, where the protagonists and antagonists keep switching. Beautiful scenic shots. Lovely lovely costumes. There's tragedy all throughout but I like the ending, because it makes sense and it sets Naomitsu free from a horrible life under the shogun. I'm currently infatuated with Shun Oguri so any film that has him I'd definitely "like".  :-)

Gary glanesb Amazing!!!Still love the Crows Zero movies better though.

OnnaOtaku This was an AMAZING movie! Has to be the best Oguri movie so far.

Takeru-kun hmm... looks intresting but is it good?
