Japanese film directed by Nagisa Ōshima. It shows life in a samuraitraining school during the "bakumatsu" period, the end of the samurai era in the mid-19th century, specifically concentrating on the issue of homosexualityin the shudōtradition in the partially-closed environment.
At the start of the movie, the young and handsome Sozaburo Kano is admitted to the
Shinsengumi(新撰組), an elite samurai police group led by Isami Kondothat seeks to defend the shogunate against reformist forces. He is a very skilled swordsman, but it is his appearance that makes many of the others in the (strictly male) group, both students and superiors, attracted to him, creating tension within the group of people vying for Kano's attention.
