35mm. Approx. 185 min.
In a 19th-century slum clinic for the poor, a gruff, heavily bearded Dr. Mifune (Best Actor, Venice) straightens out an arrogant young intern, and through his hardboiled warmth and stern compassion creates, instead of the usual “circle of evil,” a circle of good. Mifune’s last film for Kurosawa.
