Kurosawa: What is Truth? What is Honor?
(NR) Japan – 3 hr 37 min – 35mm
1954 · d. Akira Kurosawa Reviews
Starring Toshiro Mifune, Takashi Shimura, Yoshio Inaba
An aging warrior (Takeshi Shimura) assembles a group of masterless samurai, including the romantic Katsushiro (Isao Kimura) and the boisterous Kikuchiyo (Toshirô Mifune) to protect a peasant village. With its exhilarating battles, breathless pacing, and unforgettable characters, Seven Samurai set the model and high-water mark for the ensemble action film. Yet, in the background emerges a portrait of a society in flux, as the samurai—pillars of tradition—contemplate the meaning of their code in a world of chaos.
