Two peasant farmers are refugees, trying to return home after a war. They find gold, and join with a mysterious powerful-looking man and a mysterious beautiful girl. Together they attempt to smuggle the gold across the border and evade capture.
A feudal adventure told from an eccentric perspective, The Hidden Fortress is among Akira Kurosawa’s most purely enjoyable epics.
