My thought for this movie was very baffling and lost. I had no concept of what was happening throughout the movie. Even though it delivered an eloquent message to everyone, especially to men. The men in the movie were manifested as a greedy and selfish creatures. They were nothing but a delusional who were craving for their dreams to seek rich and fames. It took place relatively during the war torn period, where arrogant group of soldiers was terrorizing one village to another to abduct men for military purposes. However, the soldiers were not there just to abduct men, but to abused their status as a soldier toward the helpless villagers.

The movie also emphasized on avoiding egocentricity and be more considerate of others. If they could learned to avoid from repeating their mistakes, it will lead their life simpler and happy.

- The samurai were élite warriors in Japan during the 1200’s to the early 1700’s. Fifth century Japan saw conflicts with Korea and China, but Japan had a very untrained army, with a clumsy Calvary, and poor infantry men (Blumberg 1).
