Synopsis:
In 16th century Japan a poor village is raided every year by a group of bandits until, driven to the brink of starvation, the villagers decide to hire professional warriors to protect them. With only three meager meals a day to offer as payment, their request seems an impossible one. A simple plot, flawlessly executed - 'Seven Samurai' combines comedy, pathos, memorable characters, gripping tension and some of the finest action scenes ever filmed.

Better even than my expectations - Seven Samurai review by AH

Spoiler Alert
08/06/2015

I saw it first a year or two after its release. It is an extraordinary film. It has the power to make you forget that it is fiction. It felt more like a documentary. The acting was brilliant, the narrative compelling and subtle. I watched it without break throughout the 3 hours and 10 minutes of its performance. Are there any more such films from the same source?
