YesAsia Editorial Description

With A Tale Of Samurai Cooking – A True Love Story, director Asahara Yuzo offers audiences a love story to remember while giving a refreshing look into a seldom seen side of the samurai lifestyle.

In a role that earned her a Japan Academy nomination for best leading actress, Ueto Aya (Oshin) stars as Haru, a strong-headed divorced woman with a gift for cooking. Recognizing her talent, Funaki Dennai (Nishida Toshiyuki, The Kiyosu Conference) asks her to marry his son Yasunobu (Kora Kengo, Roommate). In the Kaga clan, the Funaki family holds the position of "Kitchen Samurai," the clan's chef, but Yasunobu is more interested in swordplay than cooking. It's up to Haru, with help from her mother-in-law Mitsuru (Yo Kimiko, Anata e), to show Yasunobu the importance and beauty of cooking.

A film about much more than just cooking Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Watching a movie about samurai chefs might not seem like the most compelling way to spend an evening. But director Asahara Yuzo's "A Tale of Samurai Cooking: A True Love Story" is a most savory cinematic dish.

Think of the story this way: Yasunobu (Kora Kengo) is the second son of an esteemed samurai chef. He has no interest whatsoever in cooking; he aspires only to a life devoted to the martial life and proves to be an exceptionally skilled swordsman. Fortunately for Yasunobu, as the second son, he is not expected to follow in his father's footsteps. That's the role that will be played by his elder brother. Unfortunately for Yasunobu, his elder brother falls ill and dies; Yasunobu now is expected to step into the first son's role, give up his plans for a military career, and become a chef. At the same time, the girl he loves and has dreamed of marrying since childhood becomes betrothed to his best friend. To add insult to injury, his father Dennai (Nishida Toshiyuki) arranges for him to marry Haru (Ueto Aya), an older woman and a commoner who had been rejected for her willfulness by her husband's family in a prior marriage.

Feeling that he's lost all purpose in life, Yasunobu turns to revolutionary politics and joins a group plotting an insurrection against the leadership of the Kaga clan. When that plot is quelled and he is denied his intended act of heroism, Yasunobu is handed one more humiliation. The Kaga clan leadership plans to hold a great banquet to heal wounds and bring the clan together. Dennai is tasked with preparing the food for the banquet, but suffers a heart attack. Too weak to proceed, he turns to Yasunobu to fill the void. In other words, Yasunobu is asked to cook the banquet feast for the very people he had hoped to depose.

As it turns out, this little film about samurai chefs has quite a dramatic story to tell! And it tells it very well, with a shining, inspiring performance by Ueto Aya as the woman who helps to steer her husband to a new life. The film's direction, cinematography, editing, costuming, set direction, script, and music all provide sturdy support for this fine film. Highly recommended.
