Starring Toshirō Mifune, Takashi Shimura
35mm. Approx. 103 min.
A 70ish factory owner played by Mifune (then 35), obsessed with fear of the Bomb, demands his extended family move to the supposed safety of Brazil. Every device at Kurosawa’s command is enlisted to enforce the mood of oppression; with a desperate Mifune’s climactic speech equaling his legendary Seven Samurai monologue.
