HARAKIRI

HARAKIRI

 Set in 17th century Japan, ‘Harakiri’ (1962) charts the journey of a ronin, a masterless samurai, who must maintain his honour by committing harakiri - a form of ritual suicide by disembowelment. As the ceremony commences, things start to unravel…It’s a thrilling ride through feudal Japan, a masterful story of deception, loyalty and incredible sword fighting!
