Summary When an idealistic governor disobeys the reigning feudal lord, he is cast into exile, his wife and children left to defend for themselves and eventually are separated by vicious slave traders. Under the dazzling direction of Kenji Mizoguchi, Sansho the Bailiff is a classic Japanese story which is seen as a Japanese masterpiece, a monumental, empathetic expression of human resilience in the face of evil.
