3.5 out of 5 stars

Akira Kurasawa – noted Japaneese director and well loved by movie afficionados. I was impressed by his brilliant cinematography – wonderful contrast in black and white. Great, timeless story. Apparently this film helped Lucas in creating the concept for Attack of the Clones – in particular telling the story from two of the lowliest characters.
