YesAsia Editorial Description

Satoh Takeru plays a samurai again after the Rurouni Kenshin series in Samurai Marathon! Directed by British filmmaker Bernard Rose (Immortal Beloved), the period action drama is set in the late Edo period and based on a novel by Samurai Hustle series writer Dobashi Akihiro. This time, the "hustle" is a full-on running battle filled with thrilling action and treachery. Satoh Takeru is joined in the Samurai Marathon by the all-star cast of Komatsu Nana, Moriyama Mirai, Sometani Shota, Aoki Munetaka. Takenaka Naoto, Toyokawa Etsushi and Hasegawa Hiroki. The film also features costume design by Wada Emi and music by Philip Glass.

In 1853, U.S. Commodore Matthew Perry arrives on Japan's shores to compel the isolated country to open its ports. Lord Itakura (Hasegawa Hiroki), who is dissatisfied with the shogunate and the foreign invaders, decides to train warriors by holding a long-distance marathon that extends around 58km. He will fulfill any wish for the winner. The prize attracts men of all walks to the race: a commoner (Sometani Shota) who wants to raise his status, a retired samurai (Takenaka Naoto) who wants to prove his worth, a retainer (Moriyama Mirai) who wants to marry the princess (Komatsu Nana), and even the princess herself in male guise. Among the contenders, there is also a spy for the central Edo government, Karasawa Jinnai (Satoh Takeru). When the government mistakes the marathon as an act of treason by Itakura and dispatches assassins, Karasawa must run faster than everyone to stop the crisis.

豪華スターキャスト×アカデミー賞(R)スタッフが贈る、史実に基く幕末エンタテインメント。
走れ! `勝つ'ためでなく`守る'ために――。

時は江戸時代、幕末。
国を守るために鎖国してきた日本は今、アメリカ政府の使者ペリーに開国を迫られて揺れていた。
そんな幕府に不満を抱く安中藩主・板倉勝明は、藩士を鍛えるために十五里(約58km)の道を走らせる遠足(ルビ:とおあし)を開催する。
優勝者の望みは何でも叶えられると聞き、「姫と結婚したい」「身分を上げたい」「もう一花咲かせたい」など、それぞれの願いを胸にスタートを切った侍たち。
だが、大会の裏では恐るべき陰謀が進められていた。
幕府の大老が遠足を“謀反の動き"と見て、勝明暗殺の刺客を放ったのだ。
そして、大会出場者の中にただ一人、この計画に気づいた男がいた。
彼の名は唐沢甚内、幕府の命令で藩をスパイする“忍び"だ。長い潜入生活で、彼にはこの地に愛する妻も子もいた。
「幕府か、藩か」──愛と忠誠心に揺れ動くなか、甚内は仲間たちに危機を告げ、共に戦うために走ることを決意する―。
