Seven samurai by Akira Kurosawa( Visual )

79 editions published between 1953 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 16th century Japan a group of rice farmers decides to take the radical step of hiring a band of mercenaries to defend their rice crop against marauding bandits. The story takes place during a period in Japanese history when society was organized along feudal lines and peasants found themselves victims of both roving samurai and gangs of bandits. Kurosawa portrays 16th century Japan as a society where starvation and calamity are so commonplace that the distinction between bandits and samurai has become blurred. The villagers hire the six ronin, or masterless samurai and one braggart (Mifune) to successfully defend their village, only three of the seven survive. Kurosawa created a visual spectacle in black and white, utilizing fast tracking shots, and quick moving montage for the battle scenes turning a story of feudalism into a modern anti war film. The original version of The Seven Samurai was shown in Tokyo but deemed too long for general release. Shorter versions were eventually released in Japan and the United States. Several years after its release, this film was remade in the United States as The Magnificent Seven starring Yul Brenner and Steve McQueen

Im 16. Jahrhundert, zur Zeit der großen Kriege, rauben Banden die Bauerndörfer aus. In einem der Dörfer will man versuchen, Widerstand zu leisten und beschließt, Samurais zum Schutz anzustellen. Nach zahlreichen vergeblichen Bemühungen und großen Schwierigkeiten der Bauern läßt sich endlich ein Kriegsoberhaupt erweichen und für ihr Unternehmen gewinnen. Sieben Kämpfer verdingen sich schließlich als Schutztruppe und beginnen, die Abwehr zu organisieren, trotz immer wiederkehrender Reibungen mit den Dorfbewohnern. Die Motivationen der Samurais sind unterschiedlich und verändern sich während ihres Aufenthalts: Aus Langeweile, Ruhmsucht und militärischem Gehorsam wird aufrichtige Solidarität mit den unterdrückten Bauern. Kurosawas eindrucksvolle filmische Freske galt lange Zeit als teuerste Filmproduktion Japans. Drehort war ein verlassenes Hochgebirgsdorf, in dem das ständig wechselnde Wetter die Dreharbeiten stark beeinträchtigte. Kurosawa bewies sich als Meister der Inszenierung und der Bildsprache, vor allem in den Schlachtenszenen. Sein Film berücksichtigt außerdem die psychologischen Aspekte und Beziehungen zwischen den Personen und wirft gesellschaftliche Probleme und ethische Fragen auf. DIE SIEBEN SAMURAI wurde auch im Westen ein derart großer Erfolg, daß die Amerikaner sich sofort die Rechte für ein Remake (DIE GLORREICHEN SIEBEN von John Sturgess) beschafften. Das Lexikon des Internationalen Films schrieb:, (...) Kurosawas faszinierendes Samurai-Epos ist packendes Aben
