|Cast||Denjiro Okochi, Yuzuru Kume, Utagoro Onoue|
The first film by Daisuke Ito in his Nikkatsu career, as well as being his first pairing with Denjiro Okochi. Two brothers who swear their life to the emperor are in love with the same woman. Only the final reel with a sequence of fights is left of the film - the fierce cross-cutting between the protagonist who helps his younger brother and love escape from Shinsengumi, and the two running away, shows a glimpse of Ito's style. A digitally restored black and white print which has then been coloured with the same method of the silent film days will be screened.
