Based on the ninkyo eiga yakuza code. Is a sphere where morality is queen. Here, men are primarily yakuza, they depend on a code of honor and not rules of society. It is a world of chivalry, and static binary:
– Proper respects and honors his yakuza clan (giri said the appearance – the duty) to forget his own personal interests (aspect ninjo says – feelings) to better serve. There is nothing that is contrary to the code of honor to his clan. This is nice.
– The bad yakuza puts his personal interests before those of any code. The honor, respect mean nothing to him. This is a bad yakuza (a villain).
Ninkyo eiga describes the idealistic past a sphere (~ 1890-1930 years) and binary where “men” live with clearly defined moral compass. Gentiles and the wicked.
Examples: vagabond Kanto (1963), Red Peony series (1968-72) .
