Reluctantly, father and son take in the woman, and, to the family's surprise, the young couple fall in love. But the lord soon reverses his decision and demands the mistress's return. Against all expectations, Isaburo and his son refuse, risking the destruction of their entire family. Director Masaki Kobayashi's Samurai Rebellion is the gripping story of a peaceful man who finally decides to take a stand against injustice.

Outstanding, among the very best samurai movies I've ever seen. If you are looking for an action movie, look elsewhere - but loads of psychological action. Certainly Mifune in peak form.
