Set in 16th century Japan, amidst the pandemonium of civil war, potter Genjūrō (Mori Masayuki) and samurai-aspirant Tobei (Ozawa Sakae) set out with their wives in search of wealth and military glory respectively. Two parallel tales ensue when the men are lured from their wives: Genjūrō by the ghostly charm of Lady Wakasa (Kyo Machiko); Tobei by the dream of military glory.

Published on New Year's Day this year, Rene Girard's "The One By Whom Scandal Comes" is the philosopher's latest extension of his great theory of mimetic desire. In a world where post-modern post-structuralism has been so institutionalized so as to form its own orthodoxy (oh the irony), Girard's philosophical certitude, attendant to a Christian theology, moral in its considerations and humanistic in its concerns, hovers at the edge of intellectual unfashionability.
