YesAsia Editorial Description

Director Shinohara Tetsuo draws from the works of esteemed author Fujiwara Shohei once again after Yamazakura for his latest film At River's Edge (a.k.a. Ogawa no Hotori). In line with acclaimed Fujiwara works like The Twilight Samurai and Bushi no Ichibun, At River's Edge examines the dilemma between a samurai's obligation to his duties versus his obligation to his family in feudal Japan. Higashiyama Noriyuki (Yamazakura) stars as Inui, a loyal samurai who has been ordered to kill a clan deserter charged with insubordination. However, not only is the deserter a childhood friend, he is also married to Inui's sister Tazu (Kikuchi Rinko, Babel). Obligated to remain loyal to his lord, Inui proceeds with the hunt, despite knowing that his sister, who was trained to be a fearless warrior as he was, will not hesitate to defend her husband's honor with her life.

Product Information


海坂藩士・戌井朔之助(東山紀之)が受けた藩命は、親友の佐久間森衛(片岡愛之助)を討つこと。藩政を痛烈に批判して脱藩した佐久間への裁きだった。民を想って正論を訴えた友を斬らねばならぬのか−朔之助の心は揺れた。しかも佐久間は、妹・田鶴(菊地凛子)の夫。田鶴は武士の妻として、手向かってくるに違いない。妹を斬ってでも主命に従えと諭す父・忠左衛門(藤竜也)に、涙を流す母・以瀬(松原智恵子)。妻の幾久(尾野真千子)は夫の身を案じながらも、気丈に振る舞う。 翌朝、朔之助は田鶴への想いを秘めた奉公人・新蔵(勝地涼)を連れ旅立つ。二人の隠れ家は、兄妹と新蔵が幼い頃に遊んだような、小川の辺にあった。遂に向き合う朔之助と佐久間。義と情の狭間で揺れ動きながらも背すじを伸ばして運命を受け入れようとする人間たちの「想い」の物語が、今、誕生する。
