Movies about the Edo period of Japan are a dime a dozen, but a movie about an Edo-period accountant?

Abacus and Sword (Bushi to Kakeibo) explores the world of accountant Hachidaime, who along with his wife (Yukie Nakama of Gokusen fame), struggles to keep their life in order during a time of political upheaval. The film is based on the diary of an unknown accountant working for the Kaga Samurai Clan.

The movie is lated to release in Japan on Dec. 14. In the meantime, see the trailer for the movie here: (Abacus and Sword)
