The Last Samurai (2003)
Shichinosuke Nakamura: Emperor Meiji
Emperor Meiji : I have dreamed of a unified Japan. Of a country strong and independent and modern. We have railroads and cannon, Western clothing. But we cannot forget who we are. Or where we come from.
Katsumoto : If I am no use, I will happily end my life.
Emperor Meiji : No, I need your voice in the Council.
Katsumoto : It is your voice we need, Highness. You are a living god. Do what you think is right.
Emperor Meiji : [ruefully] I am a living god, as long as I do what *they* think is right.
Katsumoto : What sad words you speak.
