Seven Samurai

Akira Kurosawa / Japan 1954 / 207 min. / 15 years / DCP
In the film, Kurosawa innovated the adventure genre in multiple ways. In the narration, he emphasizes the hierarchical relationships between characters of different social classes, a detailed presentation of tactics, interspersing tension with humor and poetic shots. Large fight scenes shot in the rain and wind were filmed continuously with several cameras. The film acts as a social and existential allegory of the changing relationship between lord and vassal.
