Description: A testament to the goodness of humankind, Akira Kurosawa's Red Beard (Akahige) chronicles the tumultuous relationship between an arrogant young doctor and a compassionate clinic director. Toshiro Mifune, in his last role for Kurosawa, gives us a powerhouse performance as the dignified yet passionate director who guides his pupil to maturity, teaching the embittered intern to appreciate the lives of his destitute patients. Perfectly capturing the look and feel of 19th-century Japan, Kurosawa weaves a fascinating tapestry of time, place and emotion. ... (more)

"This doesn't touch my most favorite Kurosawa films, but it is still a very impressive, philosophical piece of work. A particularly excellent performance by Toshiro Mifune. "

" Toshirô Mifune really nailed his role as a curmudgeonly humanist doctor. Unfortunately, Mifune was angry at Kurosawa because he wasn't able to work in other films because of his natural beard, and they parted ways."

"27.10. DVD, 1st viewing While it felt a bit too long at three hours, I think the length helped to root for the characters and get into the feel of the movie. A beautifully told story of humanity and caring. I like Mifune when he's not overacting. "
