One of the most beloved movie epics of all time, Akira Kurosawa`s `Seven Samurai` (`Shichinin no samurai`) tells the story of a sixteenth-century village whose desperate inhabitants hire seven out-of-work warriors to protect them from invading bandits. This three-hour ride - featuring legendary actors Toshirô Mifune and Takashi Shimura - seamlessly weaves philosophy and entertainment, delicate human emotions and relentless action into a rich, evocative, and unforgettable tale of courage and hope.
