Finding someone to defend the poor and downtrodden is the universal theme that makes Kurosawa’s monumental epic as timely as ever. In 16th century Japan, farmers are under threat from marauding bandits. One village decides to buy protection and put their faith in a samurai warrior who assembles a select group to fortify the village and prepare for attack. A spellbinding cinema classic, in which superb action sequences are underpinned by the intensity of our emotional attachment to the magnificent seven willing to fight and die for a cause. A genre-defining film that begs to be seen on a cinema screen. 

Again and again, Kurosawa sends a dark thrill through his audience with a touch of sensuous physical reality.
