Two Line Reviews - #128

Movie: Sugata SanshirĂ´ (1943,Japanese)

Plot: A talented pupil of a practitioner of Jujitsu Judo art is getting wasted because of his rough ways of using the art. A self-inflicted punishment helps him build his resolve so much so that even his love cannot stop him from a determined win against a heavyweight who happens to be her father.

  • This is Akira Kurosawa's first film says the credits & the making style with symbolic touches seem to have started from his debut.
  • The camerawork & a background score of superior quality give a compelling attraction to watch.
  • The build-up to it & the climax itself.
There is nothing unpredictable or twisty in the tale.

My Rating: 9.1/10
