Yojimbo (1961) Yojimbo (1961) Yojimbo (1961)

2006/07 Season


Japan 1961 (PG) - 110 minutes

Directed by Akira Kurosawa

Ipswich Film Theatre - 27 November 2006 - 7.30pm

A witty story of a wandering mercenary Samurai who after selling his services to them tricks two rival gangs of cut-throats into destroying each other. A comedy film noir with a main character (Mifune) who is lazy, unheroic and pragmatic.

AUDIENCE COMMENTS: One of the proofs that Easterns are Westerns with depth; Good music. Adds to the humour. How do they manage to move around so quickly wearing flipflops; Lovely black and white photography. Dreadful music, completely unsuitable. Generally good fun; Painful soundtrack, monotonous storyline, but some interesting drama; A problem film because you don't know where your sympathies lie for such a long time.
