MADE IN JAPAN: THE LADY SHOGUN AND HER MEN [OHOKU | 大奥]

http://ohoku.jp/

A woman becoming shogun? Back in the day?? In Japan??? Yes. Thanks to an epidemic that erases large parts of the male population the gender roles are reversed with women dominating society soon thereafter. In between politics and the struggle of society a love story unfolds surrounding the new 8th Shogun, beautiful Yoshimune Tokugawa. The witty film is directed by Fuminori Kaneko and based on a manga (what else) by Fumi Yoshinaga, and stars Kazunari Ninomiya, Kou Shibasaki, Maki Horikita, Tadayoshi Okura, Aoi Nakamura, Hiroshi Tamaki, Mitsuko Baisho, Muga Takewaki, Emi Wakui, Sadao Abe and Kuranosuke Sasaki.
