Two line Reviews - #9

Movie:Shichinin no samurai(1954,Japanese)

Akira Kurosawa's brilliance - The film,with its characters' emotions,humor and helplessness,makes instant connection with the audience.
The Seven samurai - Especially the roles of the monk like leader and the mischievous samurai-wannabe!
Fumio Hayasaka's lilting,inspiring soundtrack.

None at all!Maybe 'a bit lengthy' could be one.

Overall Score : 9.4/10

  1. one of the excellent movies i have seen so far. Kikuchiyo character is fantastic.... the movie is already a shortened version...the original version was lengthier which is lost i guess. Akira's sarcastic comment of 'cutting his reel lengthwise' for further shortening, shows the director's pain in seeing his work distorted. i personally would watch the entire movie if possible with awe.
