[J-Movie] Castle Under Fiery Skies

火天の城 (Katen no Shiro) atau dalam bahasa Inggrisnya berjudul “Castle Under Fiery Skies” merupakan film berlatarkan sejarah Jepang zaman feodal Jepang di bawah kepemimpinan Oda Nobunaga. Ceritanya tentang perjuangan seorang arsitek untuk membuat benteng 5 lantai. Ceritanya oke punya deh pokoknya, sangat mengharukan TT___TT

Dari dulu daku mencari-cari film ini, kalau ndak salah nonton selama penerbangan ke Tokyo tahun 2009 lalu. Setelah 4 tahun kemudian, akhirnya daku bisa menemukan link untuk nonton secara online😀. Film ini meninggalkan kesan yang sangat dalam padaku. Mungkin karena saat itu sedang belajar sejarah Jepang, sehingga ketika berkunjung dan melihat langsung benteng Jepang, bisa memahami dan mendalaminya.

Berikut adalah sinopsis dari situs Asian Wiki:

Plot

The year is 1575 in feudal Japan. Oda Nobunaga’s (Kippei Shiina) forces defeat Takeda Katsuyori, when Nagashino Castle was besieged during the Battle of Nagashino. The next year Oda Nobunada decides to build a lavish new castle symbolizing his unification of various factions. The castle named Azuchi Castle will be built near water and high enough to be seen from the capital city of Kyoto.

Notes

  • Based on Kenichi Yamamoto’s 2004 Novel “Katen no Shiro”.
  • The movie and novel concerns wood carpenters ordered to construct the Azuichi Castle, built from 1576-1579 on the shores of Lake Biwa in Omi Province, under the supervision of daimyo Oda Nobunaga.
  • Location was chosen due its proximity to the capital of Kyoto – could watch and guard approaches to the capital, but distant enough to be immune to the conflicts and fires that occasionally occurred in Kyoto.
  • Unlike other castles of its days, Azuichi was not built solely for military purposes, but also as a lavish mansion, which would impress and intimidate rival clans.
