About Seven Samurai

Year Released:
Action/Adventure, Drama

One of the most recognizable stories in film is first realized here, in Kurosawa’s epic tale of a poor village that recruits a group of samurai to defend them from a yearly bandit attack. The film stars Toshiro Mifune and Takashi Shimura in two signature roles for the legendary actors as the impulsive Kikuchiyo, and the level-headed samurai leader Kanbe respectively. Including epic fight scenes, and his signature cinematography, this is a must-see for any film lover. While this story has been frequently retold in film, television and literature, Kurosawa’s masterpiece has never been equaled. (35mm presentation Japanese language with English subtitles)
