TENGOKU TO JIGOKU
1963, Janus Films, 143 min, Japan, Dir: Akira Kurosawa

In director Akira Kurosawa’s hands, corporate executives can be just as ruthless as 16th-century samurai. Kingo Gondo’s (Toshiro Mifune) plans to take over a shoe company hit a snag when kidnappers demand a ransom for his son. It turns out the criminals have the wrong boy – the son of Gondo’s chauffeur – but still want their money. Loosely based on the Ed McBain novel King’s Ransom, this crime drama pairs the executive’s dilemma with a police procedural that’s equally gripping. In Japanese with English subtitles.


In Japanese with English subtitles.
