Akira KUROSAWA 黒澤明

A hot and humid summer in the city: In an overcrowded bus, a policeman has his service weapon stolen. While he searches for days through Tokyo to recover it, the weapon is used in a bank robbery. KUROSAWA’s early masterpiece blends Italian neo-realism with American police films, unfolding a precise social panorama of the megalopolis with its shopping avenues, bars, cafés, poor districts, and criminal temptations.
