Sanjuro (1962)

Tsubaki Sanjûrô (original title)

Watch Trailer

Director: Akira Kurosawa
Starring: Toshirô Mifune, Tatsuya Nakadai, Keiju Kobayashi


Toshiro Mifune swaggers and snarls to brilliant comic effect in Akira Kurosawa’s tightly paced, beautifully composed Sanjuro. In this sly companion piece to Yojimbo, jaded samurai Sanjuro helps an idealistic group of young warriors weed out their clan’s evil influences, and in the process turns their image of a “proper” samurai on its ear.

Technically impressive and superbly acted, Sanjuro is a funny, action-packed samurai adventure featuring outstanding cinematography and a charismatic performance from Toshiro Mifune.
