“How old are you, sire? Fifty-three, as I remember. And you still behave like a five-year-old child. People gather, scatter, they go left and right following their interests. That is not surprising. But then I find you like this. With such a narrow mind, you must not dream of leadership. Go back to your own domain. You are a mountain monkey. You should be gathering nuts in the mountains of Kai.” — Hideji Otaki (as Masakage Yamagata) in Kagemusha: Shadow Warrior (1980). Screenplay by Masato Ide and Akira Kurosauwa. In response to his overlord Shingen Takeda’s temper tantrum because his vassals wished to withdraw from a siege they were undertaking.
