More Info IMDb

Kurosawa’s film was such a radical blend of the classical and the modern that today it seems to exist out of time. The storytelling structure, in which the same story is told by different participants or observers, was radical in itself but the physical look of the film and the dynamism of the performances, particularly Toshiro Mifune as the bandit, have made it one of the milestones of the cinema itself. Kazuo Miyagawa’s gorgeous black and white cinematography is, of course, best appreciated on the big screen and this digital restoration will show you facets of this extraordinary film you have never seen before.
