Master film director Kenji Mizoguchi's epic version of the tale of the 47 Ronin is divided into two parts, released in 1941 and 1942. Taking inspiration from modern Japanese playwright Seika Mayama's series of eleven Chūshingura plays, written between 1934 and 1941, Mizoguchi’s noble images reveal the grandeur of the Genroku period and the philosophical depth of Seika’s literary world.
