See the film that inspired George Lucas’s Star Wars! Two peasants in feudal Japan are returning home through war torn territory and stumble across a princess and defeated general hiding out in a mountain fortress. Tricked into helping them escape with the promise of gold and pursued by the enemy, all are tested in this epic adventure. Akira Kurosawa’s characteristic humour and compassion combine with breath-taking action in one of his best loved and most influential films.
