The Hidden Fortress

October 21, 2013

Japan | 1958 | 139 Minutes | Akira Kurosawa

Kurosawa’s inimitable blend of wry humor, breathtaking action, and humanist compassion is featured on an epic scale in a story that became the primary influence for Star Wars.

A general, a princess, and a pair of bumbling farmers team up to dodge enemy clans while smuggling the royal treasure out of hostile territory in a spirited adventure that only Akira Kurosawa could create.
