subtle and compelling, for the most part, but some of the crying and fighting scenes went on a really long time.

Proof of Kurosawa's brilliance - a story that succeeds on all levels: storytelling, dialogue, believable performances, and inventive shot selection. The "multiple perspectives" device is used in a way that serves to reveal more about the characters, not act as a cheap gimmick.

This was the first non English language film I'd ever seem - and I never looked back. It was a revelation and led me to track all Kurosawa's films. It's multiple POV structure and relativity of truth looks a little passe now, though it still packs a punch. A great director who is still revered in Japan, not least by his structural opposite Takasi Miike.

Brilliant. If you haven't discovered Kurosawa, I'd recommend this as a great start.

Back in 1950, this was a revolutionary film. A non-linear story told from different points of view that the audience had to actually think about. The use of light and shadow, the camera angles - it is important today as it was then.

This story, I did not care about. It moved too slow, had some cheesy parts, and the solution was not good enough. Despite this, I understand if people like this movie, I do not.
