Yojimbo [12A]

Runtime: 111 mins

Distributor: BFI

Director: Akira Kurosawa

Starring: Toshirô Mifune, Eijirô Tôno

As visually stunning as it is sharply comic, the exhilarating Yojimbo reunites Akira Kurosawa with Seven Samurai’s Toshiro Mifune who stars as a nameless ronin soldier wandering the feudal Japanese countryside alone. Arriving in a rural village, he discovers two rival businessmen struggling for control of the local gambling trade, and convinces both men to hire him as a personal bodyguard. But when he quickly grows tired of the grotesque gangs, he artfully sets in motion a full-scale gang war – with deadly consequences.
