[LMB] Barrayar-Japan parallels

I was reading on Wikipedia about _jidaigeki_ (Japanese historical films)
and got to wondering if there is a parallel in Barrayaran culture.

Would Barrayaran entertainment have a whole genre of "Time of Isolation"
movies or movie-equivalents?

And I'd bet that actual Japanese _jidaigeki_ would probably be a big hit on
Barrayar, once the language barriers were done away with.  Kind of like how
I bet the older-fashioned Vor would eat up Elizabethan drama---Shakespeare,
Marlowe, Kyd and all the rest of them.
