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

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.

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.

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 by Akira Kurosawa( Visual )

2 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in Japanese and held by 155 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
