Japan, 1950
Directed by Akira Kurosawa
Starring Toshirō Mifune, Takashi Shimura, Shirley Yamaguchi.
35mm print courtesy Japan Foundation. Approx. 104 min.

A successful painter and an attractive pop singer meet innocently at a mountain resort, but Amour magazine takes it from there, with an action for slander leading to Kurosawa’s only — and brilliant — courtroom scene. Mifune as the motorcycling artist has moments of hilarious deadpan humor, but the film is dominated by Takashi Shimura as the sometime lawyer and full-time slob.
