Film Description

Shows Kurosawa's lightest touch in dealing with the Samurai genre. With a heady blend of traditional Japanese theatrical conventions and the language of Western film-making, Sanjuro is a masterpiece of comedy-drama, with a final fight scene so swift and violent that it prompted Alexander Walker, film critic of the London Evening Standard to write, 'Don't sit too near the screen!'.

It may not have the epic sweep or space of Kurosawa's greatest, but it's extremely entertaining. Read on
