Overview

Go behind the scenes of Edward Zwick's (Legends of the Fall, Glory) powerful epic set during Japan's turbulent movement away from a feudal society and into a modern nation.

After examining the ravages of 19th century America in his Academy Award winning Civil War drama Glory, director Edward Zwick explores the birth of modern Japan in The Last Samurai, a sweeping epic set in Japan during the 1870s. Tom Cruise stars as Capt. Nathan Algren, a respected American military officer hired by the Emperor of Japan to train the country's first army in the art of modern warfare. As the Emperor attempts to eradicate the ancient Imperial Samurai warriors in preparation for more Westernized and trade-friendly government policies, Algren finds himself unexpectedly impressed and influenced by his encounters with the Samurai, which places him at the center of a struggle between two eras and two worlds, with only his own sense of honor to guide him.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While no one else can open a film like Tom Cruise, The Last Samurai was no box office bonanza. This offers a heavily illustrated screenplay along with background information on costumes, locations, and so on. Films like this often become more popular on DVD, so for this price, buy the book; the film was not inspired by Mark Ravina's book of the same name. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    Awesome ! A Powerful Message

    It's right up there with Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Braveheart, Elizabeth, Gladiator and those quality films. The costuming was incredible, the story epic and the message of the film I think all of our modern society should listen to.... 'to not loose the ways of our past and where we come from.' An Honorable film.
