The argument against Takeshi Mike's remake of "Hara-Kiri" is that the members of the clan are sadistic and appear to take pleasure in Motome's suffering, but in the original the clan doesn't at all. Rather they are caught up with the ideals of bushido and Hanshiro's attack at the end is an attack on the entire power structure and false honor system underpinning it. The remake muddies the waters on this and makes it into more of a personal drama and family revenge story - still a great movie, but the original is a stone cold classic.

Please talk about more Samurali films! I loved this episode.
