The samurai occupied a prominent place in Japanese film long before the celebrated heroes of Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai. This documentary, created exclusively for the Criterion Collection, takes a close look at the history of the samurai in Japanese life and art, and the influence of the samurai figure in film leading up to and culminating in Kurosawa's masterpiece.
