Classic Cinema Club – Ealing presents: SANJURO at Ealing Town Hall (12 OCT 19:30):
SANJURO 1962 – cert PG – 95 minutes – in Japanese with English subtitles
Directed by Akira Kurosawa
Starring Toshiro Mifune, Tatsuya Nakadai, Takashi Shimura
A scruffy ronin, roaming the countryside with his trusty sword, reluctantly agrees to help a troupe of idealistic young warriors, who seek to bring down corruption in their clan. Bringing back the hit character due to popular demand, this time the nameless anti-hero is the misfit in a comedy of manners, which plays with conventions and expectations to parody the samurai genre. Kurosawa once again cast his regular favourite actors, and Mifune brings his powerful intensity and charismatic swagger to one of the director’s funniest and most entertaining films.
From the director of ‘Rashomon’ and ‘Yojimbo’.
Winner of best actor from the Kinema Junpo Awards, run by the Japanese film magazine.
