Easily one of my all time favourites is a Japanese film called Shichinin no samurai [The Seven Samurai]. It was part written and expertly directed by Akira Kurosawa who was born 100 years ago today. So happy birthday to him. Think I'll get my copy out and have a look in his honour. I'll get my hankies ready as it always makes me cry.

I love the balletic battle scenes on Mount Fuji in Ran.

What a master film maker.

I haven't seen Ran in full. Will watch out for the scenes.
Agreed that he was a film master.
