Akira Kurosawa

Sugata Sanshiro
La Légende de judo
  • Akira Kurosawa, Japan 1943 ⁄ Denjirô Ôkôchi, Susumu Fujita ⁄ black and white ⁄ 79' ⁄ ST-OND: EN

The filming of Sanshiro Sugata began on location in Yokohama on December 13, 1942. In his autobiography, Kurosawa recalls how strange his own voice sounded when he first called “action” – something that he had done countless times as an assistant director. The production proceeded without major hiccups but getting the completed film past the censors was a different matter. Despite its propagandist qualities, the censorship board saw the work as too “British-American”, and it was only through the intervention of director Yasujirō Ozu that Sanshiro Sugata was finally accepted for release and came out on 25 March 1943. Kurosawa had just turned 33.

Ichiban Utsukushiku
Le Plus Doux
The Most Beautiful
  • Akira Kurosawa, Japan 1943 ⁄ Takashi Shimura, Sôji Kiyokawa, Ichirô Sugai ⁄ black and white ⁄ 85' ⁄ ST-OND: EN

The Most Beautiful demonstrates several resilient young women who work diligently in a factory, facing illness and injury during the events of World War II. Despite their circumstances, the workers at the optics plant try their best to meet production targets in order to aid in Japan’s war efforts. It's a bit of an outlier for anyone seeking a classic Kurosawa samurai adventure, but the experience is surprisingly touching.

Zoku Sugata Sanshirô

Sanshiro Sugata Part Two
  • Akira Kurosawa, Japan 1945 ⁄ Denjirô Ôkôchi, Susumu Fujita, Ryûnosuke Tsukigata ⁄ black and white ⁄ 82' ⁄ ST-OND: EN

Following the box office success of Kurosawa’s debut film Sanshiro Sugata, the film studio Toho wanted more of the same, and as an up-and-coming director who needed his studio’s backing Kurosawa was not in a place to deny them. The film was released on May 3, 1945, towards the end of the Second World War. It is often blatantly propagandist, for instance pitting the hero against an American boxer, whom he handily defeats.

The Hidden Fortress
La forteresse cachée
  • Akira Kurosawa, Japan 1958 ⁄ Toshirô Mifune, Misa Uehara, Minoru Chiaki ⁄ black and white ⁄ 126' ⁄ ST-OND: EN

The Hidden Fortress’s Princess Yuki is introduced as young, angry, defiant and more than capable of holding her own in a fight – a proto-feminist sadly lacking in 1950s Hollywood. She has lost her friends, her family and her kingdom. Star Wars went one better and destroyed his princess’s entire planet. But the upshot is the same: both can never go home again. Both are princesses of realms that no longer exist and both must place their trust in some unlikely characters in order to battle their way to safety from behind enemy lines.
