Happy this didn't win for best foreign picture
Far inferior film to Barbarian Invasions.
Will spoil the plot:
- samurai meets girl
- samurai loses girl
- Girl divorces rich drunk
- Samurai's wife dies of consumption
- samurai loses girl again because he's poor
- samurai kills thus gaining honour & more clan money
- samurai marries girl
- Meiji restoration starts civil war
- samurai killed 3 years after marriage
Hopefully the other 3 nominees will be more worthy. Zelary comes out on DVD on February 8th.
