Abstract

This film about the politics and battles of the Russo-Japanese War (1904–1905) shows how an emperor’s decision affects ordinary people. Emperoro Meiji's (1852–1912) militarism and determination to make Japan a world power cinematically results in stunning battle sequences. The cost of his goal comes at the expense of the lives of the men of rural peasantry.
