28 editions published between 1961 and 2016 in Japanese and English and held by 847 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a flea bitten, dusty Japanese town, a ronin (unemployed samurai) finds himself in the middle of a feud between two warring mafia's. On one side of town a local silk merchant is building a small army, while on the other, a sake merchant is hiring anybody who can carry a sword. The two merchants engage in a bidding war to employ the services of the itinerant samurai, but he has his own plans. Disgusted by both sides, the samurai, (Mifune) instigates a war between the two factions and with great pleasure sits in the town's bell tower watching them cut each other to pieces. After freeing the daughter of a local villager from bondage, he leaves the town in search of further exploits. Yojimbo was the inspiration for several Sergio Leone films including the Clint Eastwood vehicle, A Fistful of Dollars which was made a few years later. Kurosawa portrays 19th century Japan as a society where corruption and calamity are so commonplace that the distinction between bandits and samurai have become blurred. Kurosawa was one of the few Japanese directors who was allowed to work with relative creative freedom, his early films were consistently commercially successful, as was the case with Yojimbo. Kurosawa's films along with his contemporaries Ozu, Mizoguchi, and Ichikawa raised Japanese cinema onto the world stage in the period immediately after World War II

Onna ga kaidan o agaru toki = When a woman ascends the stairs by Mikio Naruse( Visual )

4 editions published between 1960 and 2007 in Japanese and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When a Woman Ascends the Stairs might be Japanese filmmaker Mikio Naruse's finest hour--a delicate, devastating study of a woman, Keiko (played heartbreakingly by Hideko Takamine), who works as a bar hostess in Tokyo's very modern postwar Ginza district, who entertains businessmen after work. Sly, resourceful, but trapped, Keiko comes to embody the conflicts and struggles of a woman trying to establish her independence in a male-dominated society. When a Woman Ascends the Stairs shows the largely unsung yet widely beloved master Naruse at his most socially exacting and profoundly emotional

Rashōmon by Akira Kurosawa( Visual )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in Japanese and English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A riveting psychological thriller that investigates the nature of truth and the meaning of justice, Rashomon is widely considered one of the greatest films ever made. Four people give different accounts of a man's murder and the rape of his wife, which director Akira Kurosawa presents with striking imagery and an ingenious use of flashbacks. This eloquent masterwork and international sensation revolutionized film language and introduced Japanese cinema, and a commanding new star by the name of Toshiro Mifune, to the Western world
Shichinin no samurai( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in Japanese and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This epic masterpiece is about a group of 16th century samurai who are hired to defend a small Japanese village that finds itself annually raided by an army of bandits who steal the meager crops harvested by the peasants. Tired of relinquishing their food supply but woefully inept in combat skills, the villagers decide to hire a band of samurai to protect them. In addition to the primary conflict between the villagers and the bandits, much of the tale revolves around young Katsushiro's coming-of-age, both sexually and emotionally. Kikuchiyo's search for acceptance forms the other major storyline. Indeed, everyone in Seven Samurai is searching: for adventure, for experience, for freedom from their oppressors

In 17th-century Japan, a samurai's daughter, Oharu, falls in love with a servant. Caught together, the man is beheaded and Oharu and her family are exiled. After enduring further misfortunes as a concubine, a courtesan, wife, and prostitute, Oharu becomes a mendicant nun in her old age. A peerless chronicler of the soul who specialized in supremely emotional, visually exquisite films about the circumstances of women in Japanese society throughout its history, Kenji Mizoguchi (Ugetsu) had already been directing movies for decades when he made The Life of Oharu in 1952

Shichinin no samurai = Les sept samouraïs by Akira Kurosawa( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in Japanese and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Au Moyen-Age, la tranquillité d'un petit village japonais est troublée par les attaques répétées d'une bande de pillards. Sept samouraïs sans maître acceptent de défendre les paysans impuissants." [Source : allocine.fr]...Quatorzième film de Kurosawa, c'est celui où il décide de parler de cette période des guerres civiles qui ravagent le Japon du XVIème siècle. C'est une époque qui le fascine car, selon lui, c'est le dernier siècle où l'individu peut choisir son destin [...] avant la "glaciation sociale" du XVIIème siècle par les shoguns. Plusieurs de ses films les plus éclatants ont, par la suite, eu cette époque pour cadre. Ce n'est pas par hasard si l'histoire se déroule en trois temps, les trois temps du théâtre Nô, qu'il affectionne particulièrement, JO/HA/KYU : prologue / destruction-rupture / accélération (jaquette, Catherine Cadou)

A young novelist endures a series of personal upheavals en route to literary success. Her affairs with a handsome writer who encourages her to join a writer's group but betrays her in romance and an alcoholic writer who is at first supportive and eventually destructive prove costly for the talented writer. The film is based on the autobiography of Fumiko Hayashi, whose writings Naruse had previously adapted in the films Repast, Lightning and Late Chrysanthemums.--Harvard Film Archive
