Review
Kurosawa's social commentary, made at the height of the cold war, is his least commercially successful film, lacking the vibrant energy of "Seven Samurai" and "Throne of Blood", but it's a blistering indictment of society's complacency in the face of possible disaster. Mifune is the ageing head of a Tokyo family who, convinced of the imminence of nuclear war, decides to sell the family business and move them all to Brazil. In the ensuing squabble, his family have attempt to have him declared insane. Is it Mifane or the rest of the world that's gone mad?
