A classic

I can’t believe I haven’t seen any movies directed by Akira Kurosawa for such a long time. A few years ago, I was doing a good job and ended up watching 13 of his movies but, by now, it has been almost 10 years since I saw another one of his movies. It is a real shame but maybe I will pick it up again later on. Anyway, this flick is probably one of his most famous ones and therefore I was real... read more

Princess Yuki Akizuki is to be led through enemy territory, where she may rebuild her kingdom with gold that she has in her caravan. She is assisted by her trusted general, Rokurota Makabe, who insists that she masquerades as a mute farmer. Two minions, Tahei and Matashichi help unknowingly, as they believe they will get a piece of the gold if they help the princess attain her goals.

"13.2. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Akira Kurosawan iloinen TohoScope-spektaakkeli on nätti, kuin mikä ja taistelu- sekä joukkokohtausten vaikuttavuus jälleen jotain omaa luokkaansa, muttei aiheuta samanmoista älyllistä kutkuttelua, kuin nuo kuluvan vuoden aiemmat kurosawat. Se on ihan ok se, enkä aio heristää sormeani mistään hollywoodeilustakaan. Vahvojen naishahmojen osalta selvästi jonkinnäköinen edelläkävijä, varsinkin seikkailuelokuvaympäristössä. Pan&scan-versio tästä vo"

Kätketty linnake on kaikin puolin viihdyttävä elokuva, mutta se on liian perinteistä western-vaikutteista seikkailua minun makuuni. Toki tällainenkin konsepti voi toimia moitteettomasti, mutta Kurosawa ei mielestäni taida yhtä hyvin tyylipuhtaita genre-elokuvia, kuin niiden sekoituksia. Pituutta o"
