This is an original, rolled, Japanese B2 (50 x 71cm) poster for the video release of this movie "切腹" in the 1980s and not the theatrical release in 1962.
This poster is in almost mint condition and has never been folded.
This is one of the most iconic Japanese films directed by reknown Masaki Kobayashi. The story takes place between 1619 and 1630 during the Edo period and the rule of the Tokugawa shogunate. It tells the story of Hanshirō Tsugumo, a warrior without a lord.
Any poster from this film is very rare and hard to find. We are very lucky to have come across this symbolic original, not a reproduction or a reprint.
Certificate of Authenticity is included.
