Seven Samurai
(Directed by Akira Kurosawa/Japan/1954)
With Tasashi Shimura, Toshirô Mifune, Yoshio Inaba
One of the most beloved movie epics of all time, Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai (Shichinin no samurai) tells the story of a sixteenth-century village whose desperate inhabitants hire the eponymous warriors to protect them from invading bandits. This three-hour ride—featuring legendary actors Toshiro Mifune and Takashi Shimura—seamlessly weaves philosophy and entertainment, delicate human emotions and relentless action into a rich, evocative, and unforgettable tale of courage and hope.
In Japanese with English subtitles.
WINNER: Venice Film Festival Silver Lion

“Breathtaking, fast-moving, and overflowing with a delightfully self-mocking sense of humor, Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai is one of the most popular and influential Japanese films ever made.”-David Ehrenstein
