Details

Toshirô Mifune won the Best Actor prize at the Venice Film Festival for his towering performance in this Kurosawa classic that directly influenced the spaghetti westerns of Sergio Leone. Mifune is Sanjuro, an itinerant samurai who lets the flashing blade of his sword do all his talking. Arriving in a sleepy backwater town torn apart by conflict, he finds himself courted by two warring clans in need of his services. However, Sanjuro has his own code of honour and his own agenda. A pitch perfect combination of furious action sequences, deliciously dark humour and charismatic star power. 

A movie that is both a wow of a show and a masterpiece of misanthropy.
