The Hill of Destiny

by Hogetsu Shimamura

It is your destiny, Your Majesty!

Yes, indeed

I was destined

to come to this castle

Moscow is my lover

We are meant to be together

When first I laid eyes on her,

I knew it was meant to be

I can't believe it took me

so long to realize it

- Good evening

- Madame


- Greetings

- Hello


Thank you for inviting us here

this evening

I'm excited about this new piece

by Shimamura

That's pretty

I'll see you later

The civilization

of the 18th century...

...has forced Your Majesty... act against it

And where do I get

the power to do that?

Because it is my destiny.

That's how it all began

Quite a performance

- You will reward him later

- Taking a walk?

Your Majesty!

So tonight she gets Napoleon


I'm worried that he left

before the end

Don't worry

But I am worried

What if he stops supporting us?

What will I do then?

I won't let that happen


It's fine

He knows all about us

I never thought that

she would be barren

He's arrived


Do you like making love to me

while the one you love waits outside?

Tell me...

Does that noise turn you on?

Stop it

I haven't seen you for months


How can we go on like this?

It's getting serious

We were wrong to start this

I'm leaving you

But then...

What's going to happen to me?

We will be ruined if we carry on

Who do you think got you

a job as his bodyguard?

I think you want to be ruined

But I don't care about that

I am what I am

And I'm just a whore

How can I become somebody

when I have nothing?


I don't want to get

trapped with you

And I don't want to be poor

for the rest of my life either

I see

You will always be a nobody

Say that again

I'll say it. You're a coward...

Hitting women

is about your level

You b*tch.

Damn you

If you hate me that much...

...I would be happy

to ruin everything for you

You whore!

I shall never see you again

Hey, Todo

- You walk ahead of me

- Yes, Sir

I'm sending Shino to my

summer house tomorrow

She's pregnant.

Mine, of course

I'm bored

Please be patient

You will have a healthy child

You think so?

I'm sure you will

We had so many visitors

when we were in town

It was so exhausting there

It's so quiet here and

nice to be away

Is it three o'clock yet?

There he is

What a grand view you have here

You're wonderful

I really like the dialogues

in this scene

It's so well written.

I feel really inspired by it

- Shall I continue?

- That's enough

Come over here

But Madam...

Just be quiet

It's not right

in your condition


Now you know

Not a word to anybody

It's a secret

She's going into labor

Please come at once

She's having twins.

There's no doubt about it

Are they both boys?

I can't be sure

They could both be the same sex

or one of each

You must ensure it is a boy

I can't do that

Must you scream so?

It gets on my nerves

It is rather noisy in here


Push harder

It's coming

I'm coming!

Shino's has given birth

Her baby boy is the heir

to our household

She gave birth also to a girl.

And that's why you're here

This must be kept a secret.

Shino has sworn to keep it so

But we want to be sure

So Master has asked you

to take care of the situation

A family heirloom

by Kanemitsu of Bizen

You must see

how serious this is

Kill her if you must

I thought he had promised me

a position in the police force

Be assured that your sacrifice

will be greatly appreciated

Todo, you know the saying...

Those who dare to be ambitious,

are also slaves to ambition


Shino and the baby girl

are here

They must never set foot

in this house again

I understand

Nineteen years later

Right wing terrorism

is on the increase

Katsuragawa is appointed

as Home Secretary

Sir, we've had a letter

from Shanghai


The time has come for us

to go abroad

Japan is too small

They told me

I could go to Shanghai

They must take me for a fool

Going to China...

...remains a dream

We shall see

When the war begins

the situation will change

We'll have a better chance then



- From whom?

- I meant, get me cash

Go to the bank now

Take it all out

- Get me a train ticket

- Sir!

So this is where you are

If you still care for me

even a little bit...

...will you also care

for my daughter Kyoko?

I must carry my own burden

of unhappiness

And I will take Kyoko's with me

I have no strength left in me

Will you meet Kyoko?

I humbly beg you

Shino Toda



Shino, it's me.


You poor thing

For God's sake,

why didn't you tell me sooner?

Say something

You can't even talk?

You have no idea how hard

I searched for you

We were both to blame.

Weren't we?

You were whoring in a coalmine

Then you had that shop

But every time I found you,

you ran away

Did you hate me so much?


Say something

I don't care

if you curse me to death

I can't rest easy until

I hear your voice


Your daughter?


You don't have to

worry about her now

You can rest in peace


Did you say goodbye to her?

Just now

It's Mr Todo, isn't it?

That's right.

And you're Kyoko


What will you call me?

Mr. Todo


You could call me dad or uncle

Dad should pull his chin in

Mr. Todo...

Where's the whorehouse?

Here we go!

- The whore house

- What!?

Hello Sir!

So, you want to come inside?

- What are you doing?

- Don't just stand there!

You know what goes on here?

- You're going to spend the night?

- Yes, I am

Have you done this before?

You've slept with a man?

I'm relieved to hear it

Let's get out of here


- I shall work here

- You idiot

This is no place for you

You must sleep with strangers

every day


You might get sick, too

I'm supposed to be your guardian

Your mother's ghost

will curse me

Get up!



Sorry for the bother

- Wait...

- Shut up!


Or I will attack


After my mother was gone...

...I wanted to do

whatever I wanted

Sell your body?


I'm a prostitute's daughter.

I will become a prostitute



You're good with swords

But not good enough to beat me

Shino, what are you doing here?


Let me go

Kyoko is gone

He could be one of them


I never knew my father

So what?

He could be one of my customers

Who cares about that!

I'd even sleep with a pig

so long as they paid me

- Is there a new girl here?

- A new girl?

You mean Shino?


Who are you?

Are you a detective?

How about me?

F*** you

Shino is busy right now

I don't care. Take me

I can't

Shino. Where is she?

Hey, old man...

You bastard!

Love is just a fancy word

for sex

Master Clark told us:

"Boys, be ambitious"

My real ambition lies here,

between her legs

- You've got a wandering eye

- So what!

Road to Innocence

My kind of place

A nice young student!

Just what I was waiting for

Why don't you drop in?
