Summary
  • Kurosawa's galvanizing evocation of nuclear-age anxieties presents Mifune as an elderly Tokyo patriarch whose overpowering fear of the bomb alienates him from his entire family and society, as he resolves to move the entire reluctant family to South America. This is the final film of this period in which Kurosawa would directly wrestle with the demons of the Second World War and his most literal representation of a society living in an atomic age and still terrorized by memories of the past
  • Postwar Kirosawa: Akira Kurosawa came into his own as a filmmaker directly following World War II, delving into the state of his devastated nation with a series of pensive, topical dramas. Amid Japan's economic collapse and U.S. occupation, Kurosawa managed to find humor and redemption alongside despair and anxiety. In these five early films, which range from political epic to Capraesque whimsy to courtroom potboiler, Kurosawa revealed the artistic range and social acuity that would mark his career and make him the most popular Japanese director in the world
