(Akira Kurosawa, Japan 1958)
Rated PG
Low-level violence.

Revered now as an inspiration for George Lucas, Kurosawa's amiable, forthright epic romance happens on a scorched, rugged landscape which looks quite a lot like an alien planet. At other times, the movie plays like nothing so much as a roistering comedy western.

But it has a cleverly contrived relationship between the principals, including a fantastically brash and virile Toshiro Mifune. The comedy co-exists with a dark view of life's brevity, and Kurosawa devises exhilarating set pieces and captivating images. Arthouse classics aren't usually as welcoming and entertaining as this. - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 1 February 2002.
