Finally watched this ,none of the films on Rikyu have ever moved me one way or another until this one ,it starts during the reign of Hidetata when a disciple of Rikyu is summoned by Nobunaga's younger brother to discuss the events that led up to the death of Rikyu and two of his colleagues .

It is one of those film within a film type drama's ,very beautiful and hypnotic and well worth seeing .

Ichiban has just done part 1 of Nohime with part 2 coming soon ,as well as the recent TV Asahi Miyamoto Musashi .

Abacus and Sword is one of those quirky films similar to Scabbard Samurai .

Semi Shigure was released on film as The Samurai I Loved by Animeigo ,this however is the superior 03 NHK TV Drama ,Uchino Maasaki has the lead and of course this led to him being cast in Furin Kazan .
I saw it on TV about 10 years ago ,going from memory the story is much more fleshed out and boasting a superior cast to the film ,the ending is different as is the beginning which gives more background on the would be star crossed lovers .
