Boss!

How much?

Seven rice bowls at 20 mons each

and a meal at 30 mons...

that's 170 mons.

Really...

There's a problem,

I don't have any money.

I'm broke.

Crook!

You want to leave without paying?

How inconsiderate!

Really...

Boss!

I can work in exchange!

I can chop wood,

do the washing, do the housework,

clean out a well and fix leaks.

Since when do you have a son

who knows how to do so many things?

He's not my son. He's my husband.

Your husband?

What?

Who are you?

ARAI RELAY REGU LATION

N IZAEMON - S HOGU N M ESS ENGER,

KIS H U FI EF:

Stop acting, you dirty peasant!

Are they dead?

What happened?

They were on the highway.

I saw three men attack them

from far.

The attackers were expert swordmen.

Why would they attack employees

of a post house?

I don't know.

If it happened on the highway,

it doesn't fall within my jurisdiction.

Aren't you going to do something?

Nothing.

ARAI RELAY ADM I N ISTRATION

Chohachi... Toramatsu...

Chohachi...

Sir Samurai!

Please, help us!

What's going on?

It's a long story.

They've been killed

by Nizaemon's guards.

He's the one behind all this!

You're right! It's obvious.

What cruelty!

He's gone too far.

Come, we're going to assault

his office!

Seizo! Don't rush!

No one will stop me.

This work, it's all our life!

Seizo, stop.

Seizo.

Be careful.

- Lady Chise...

- Do as I say.

Sir, you're the one who brought them,

are you still here?

Please forgive me.

I'm blind.

I'm in charge of this

relay administration.

I would like to talk to you.

Bring some water for his feet.

My name is Chise.

What's your name?

I'm known as

"Kiba, the Furious Wolf".

"Furious" because I show my fangs

very often

and "Wolf"...

because...

I'm just like a wolf.

The Furious Wolf?

You're very bearded for a wolf.

Yet, I shave.

How do you like this relay,

sir Wolf?

In the past, I knew

a village very similar to this one.

But a plague was devastating it.

Here, our scourge,

it's Nizaemon, the messenger.

The messenger?

Stationed every 28 km

official messengers are in charge

of the shogun's mail transport.

Local officers can't

do anything against Nizaemon.

He's taking advantage of it.

He hires runaway criminals

and drifters.

Even the village guard

is at his orders.

He wants to take over

the relay's management.

Before, he was only

stealing merchandise

but this time

he killed my employees.

One moment.

Why does he want this relay?

To transport merchandise

from Bushu to Koshu,

you have to change

men and horses here.

That's what interests him.

If he was running this relay,

he could make his own rates.

That's terrible.

Seizo wants...

We couldn't hold him back.

Seizo, don't forget that

I am the Shogun's messenger.

If you lift a hand

on my official outfit,

I have the right to kill you.

He looks like a donkey

wearing a lion skin!

What?

Dogs...

Wait!

Wait!

Mister the samurai!

I'm not here to help you

but to tell you to stop

those stupid quarrels.

Why don't you mind your own business?

Is it you, Nizaemon?

You are well dressed

for a simple messenger.

- It fits you well.

- You son of a...

Hideo Gosha

Hideo Gosha (五社 英雄, Gosha Hideo, February 26, 1929 – August 30, 1992) was a Japanese film director. Born in Arasaka, Tokyo Prefecture, Gosha graduated from high school and served in the Imperial Navy during the Second World War. After earning a business degree at Meiji University, he joined Nippon television as a reporter in 1953. In 1957 he moved on to the newly founded Fuji Television and rose through the ranks as a producer and director. One of his television shows, the chambara Three Outlaw Samurai, so impressed the heads of the Shochiku film studio that he was offered the chance to adapt it as a feature film in 1964. Following this film's financial success, he directed a string of equally successful chambara productions through the end of the 1960s. His two most critical and popular successes of the period are Goyokin and Hitokiri (also known as Tenchu), both released in 1969 and both considered to be two of the finest examples of the chambara genre. During the 1970s Gosha abandoned pure chambara and turned his productive energies toward films in the yakuza genre but he still produced period sword films such as The Wolves (1971 film) (1972), Bandits vs. Samurai Squadron (1978), and Hunter in the Dark (1979). His films Three Outlaw Samurai and Sword of the Beast (1965) have been released by Criterion.By the early 1980s, Gosha began making period films that featured prostitutes as protagonists that were renowned for their realism, violence, and overt sexuality. They were critically panned for those very reasons, but they were also all box office successes. In 1984 he was awarded the Japan Academy Prize for Director of the Year for The Geisha.Gosha’s films have influenced directors including Chang Cheh, Takashi Miike, and Yoshiaki Kawajiri. more…
