Toshirô Mifune stars as a wandering Samurai with dazzling sword skills in this classic feudal Japanese film from Akira Kurosawa. After arriving in a new town that is ravaged by two warring criminal gangs, the samurai swiftly demonstrates his proficiency with a blade and becomes desired property for both gangs. Instead of joining either team, the cunning samurai pits both gangs against each other ... read more

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

Brilliant acting by Mifune and veiled anti-capitalist themes make this a masterpiece of the "Samurai Movie" sub-genre. There are so many tensions: corruption vs morality, greed vs self-sacrifice, samurai order vs gangster chaos, even the sword vs the gun. It's hardly a surprise when the streets are eventually filled with dead bodies!

The directing by Kurosawa is geared towards build... read more

"10.5 Kurosawan kunnianosoitus John Fordin westerneille, jota ilman ei Sergio Leonen Dollari-trilogiaa olisi syntynyt. Kourallinen dollareitahan on melkein yksi yhteen suora kopio tästä. Toshiro Mifunen Sanjuro on puolestaan prototyyppi Clint Eastwoodin nimettömälle antisankarille. Painostava elokuva, jossa kuolema on jatkuvasti läsnä ja Sanjuron on tyydyttävä taistelutaitojensa lisäksi myös oveluuteen voittaakseen pikkukylän rauhaa häiritsevät rikolliset."

"Sergio Leone's 1964, A Fistful of Dollars "Americanized" this Japanese film. Both are great!"

"28.5. Olisihan tähän voinut tietysti keskittyä paremmin, mutta juoni sentään on tuttu ja Mifune varsinainen yrmy."
