An American military advisor embraces the Samurai culture he was hired to destroy after he is captured in battle.

Capt. Nathan Algren is an American military officer hired by the Emperor of Japan to train the country's first army in the art of modern warfare. As the government attempts to eradicate the ancient Samurai warrior class in preparation for more Westernised and trade-friendly policies, Algren finds himself unexpectedly affected by his encounters with the Samurai, which places him at the center of a struggle between two eras and two worlds.

Screened in association with the exhibition Yuichiro Tamura: Milky Mountain / 裏返りの山.

JP/US/NZ, 2003, 155 min., Dir. Edward Zwick
