Sanjuro

The theme of the movie shows us a vagabond samurai, roaming free, offered to one or another clan that is in his gait and roads, according to their own desires or needs coyuntarales survival, yes always safeguarding justice, honor and the well curb abusers.

But if something has gone down in history "Sanjuro" is thanks to legendary final duel of the film in it, protagonist and antagon... read more

(OK) Kind of pre Akahige (Redbeard), with a whimsical samurai saving lige of impetuos young ones. I like Mifune/Sanjuro beaing embarrasses and angry becuase he acuases too many deaths. And, yeah, nice ideas the camelias as signals...

Not one of Kurasawa's best but still a great film

I do love Akira Kurasawa's movies, especially Seven Samurai, Ran, Ikiru, Rashomon, Yojimbo, The Hidden Fortress and Throne of Blood. Sanjuro(sequel to Yojimbo) is not quite on the same level, but it is a fine film regardless and perhaps alongside The Hidden Fortress Kurasawa's most accessible film. It is very well made, with beautiful and sometimes epic scenery and superb camera work. Kurasawa dir... read more

“I do love Akira Kurasawa's movies, especially Seven Samurai, Ran, Ikiru, Rashomon, Yojimbo, The Hidden Fortress and Throne of Blood. Sanjuro(sequel to Yojimbo) is not quite on the same level, but it is a fine film regardless and perhaps alongside The Hidden Fortress Kurasawa's most accessible film. It is very well made, with beautiful and sometimes epic scenery and superb camera work. Kurasawa directs with his usual flair, not as delicate as Ikiru, haunting as Yojimbo or as ambitious as Ran, but still highly impressive. The score is lively, the story is engaging, crisply-paced and always fun and the script is witty and tongue-in-cheek yet with a subtle edge. The characters are somewhat one-dimensional and not quite as identifiable as the titular character in Ikiru but still likable nonethe” read more

"16.2. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Jatko-osan juonittelujen keskellä ei jostain syystä oikein jaksanutkaan kiinnostaa, kuin tappelut. Ne ovat mallikkaita, yllättäen."

"25.3. Mifunen pahaperseily hipoo täydellisyyttä, ellei ole jo sitä. Tarina on tyylikäs ja Kurosawan ote pitää. Muistutti taas siitä, kuinka noita vielä näkemättömiä pitäisi korkkailla ja noita jo nähtyjä mahdollisesti jopa uudelleenkatsella nyt vuosien jälkeen."

" Sanjûrô Tsubaki: He was just like me. A drawn sword that wouldn't stay in its sheath. But, you know, the lady was right. The best sword is kept in its sheath. You'd better stay in yours."

"10.5 Double featurena päälle vielä Yojimbon kevytmielisempi jatko-osa. Toimintaa ja huumoria on enemmän vastapainona Yojimbon synkemmille teemoille. Ihan yhtä toimiva pätkä tämäkin, eikä kumpikaan Sanjuron seikkailuista sulje toisiaan pois, satun vain pitämään ensimmäisen osan vakavammasta otteesta enemmän."
