The Shinsengumi were a group of swordsmen employed by the Tokugawa shogunate. The group was created during the crisis period of the late Edo period when some groups in Japan wanted to overthrow the shogunate and return the emperor to a more central position. The Shinsengumi's initial name was "Ronin of Mibu" from which the title of the film was derived. Mibu happens to be a town where the group was formed. See more »
A great movie about samurais, full of historical details and deep feelings, is a story of a brave samurai that put´s love and family first.But when samurai code and family mixed together, emerges a number of moral questions like honor and loyalty and how thin is the line that separates the traitor from the hero.Society in hour days seems different but people still use political and religion arguments to convince others to serve their thirst for power.On the end what really matters is love and some of us learn that by the hard way.
;) "A must see masterpiece"
