Kagemusha: Shadow Warrior (1980)

“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.
