Patriotism AKA Yûkoku (1966) Masaki Dômoto, Yukio Mishima, Yoshiko Tsuruoka


Two characters on a Noh stage dramatize the rite of love and death of Lieutenant Shinji Takeyama and his wife Reiko. Takeyama was one of a cadre of young officers who staged a coup d’état in February, 1936. He was not arrested when the coup failed, but as an officer of the palace guard, he knew he would be given the order to execute his friends. The night before the execution, he and his wife prepare for hara-kiri, first with passion without shyness, then in uniform and kimono with sword and dagger. Calligraphy figures in the preparation, as Reiko gathers her keepsakes to give to survivors. They embrace in death.

Also Known As (AKA): Rito de Amor e de Morte, Rites d’amour et de mort, The Rite of Love and Death
