Set in ninth century Kyoto. A nobleman is murdered, his bride is raped by a bandit. These deeds are the subject of four different accounts, three by participants and one by an eye-witness. Kurosawa uses a flashback technique to tell the four different versions of these events, and cynically shows the ability of human beings to twist the truth to preserve the idea they have of themselves. The version of the witness, the woodcutter, is different to those of the three participants, and he emerges as the hero of the story

This film follows the lives of the people who live in a slum, built in a garbage dump. A mentally disabled boy is obsessed with streetcars, driving an imaginary streetcar around, chanting "Dodes'ka-den! Dodes'ka-den!"--Mimicking the sound of the wheels. Some of the neighbors are a young woman living with her lecherous uncle; a pair of friends who get drunk and swap wives; a possibly mentally ill beggar and his son who live in a deserted car; and a man with five children who knows he is not the father of any, but treats them as if they were his own. Although they may dream of better times, these people are trapped--both physically and psychologically--doomed to live a life of disappointment (or worse), but many find ways to carry on

Kiichi Nakajima (Mifune) decides to relocate his family to the safe haven of Brazil from what he perceives is a nuclear holocaust. His methods of getting them there, by burning down their foundry, leads to his incarceration when the family commits him for being criminally insane. From the confines of the asylum Kiichi drifts into a fantasy world where he believes that the sun is an inferno created by the Earth when it exploded in a nuclear holocaust. 'I Live in fear' is Kurosawa's blatant criticism of the perils of nuclear warfare, and was produced at the height of the Cold War when the United States, Britain and the Soviet Union were all experimenting with nuclear testing. The destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was also a recent and painful memory. This a powerful study of patriarchy in Japanese society, and what Kiichi is willing to do to convince his family to support his beliefs. DVD

Shichinin no samurai = Les sept samouraïs by Akira Kurosawa( visu )
20 editions published between 1954 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 70 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 :]...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)
