Akira Kurosawa’s epic historical adventure drama "Seven Samurai" (1954) has consistently ranked highly in critics’ lists of the greatest films, such as the BFI’s Sight & Sound and the Rotten Tomatoes polls. It has remained highly infl uential, widely regarded as one of the most remade, reworked, referenced fi lms in cinema. It was most famously remade in Hollywood as the western The Magnifi cent Seven in 1960.
The story takes place in 1586 during the Sengoku Period of Japanese history, and it follows the story of a village of farmers that hire seven ronin (masterless samurai) to combat bandits who will return after the harvest to steal their crops.
"Seven Samurai" stars Toshiro Mifune as Kikuchiyo, and has poignant music by Fumio Hayasaka, all of which is presented on this release. NHayasaka died of tuberculosis shortly after in 1955 at the age of 41. Hayasaka’s complete music for the 1955 Kurosawa film "I Live in Fear" [aka Record of a Living Being], which was the last score the composer made before his death (it was completed by Masaru Sato, who would continue working with Kurosawa), has been added here as a bonus.
