Legendary Japanese actor Toshiro Mifune returns for his 9th collaboration, with master director Akira Kurosawa in Yojimbo, a film that has inspired countless filmmakers. The plot of this film was literally stolen by the great 'Spaghetti Western' director Sergio Leone and remade as the classic "A Fistful of Dollars' in 1964.

Yojimbo is the story of a samurai who wanders into a town in turmoil. Pitting the town's two warring clans against each other, the mysterious samurai plays a profitable, yet dangerous game. Yojimbo is laced with expert swordplay, black humour and a wonderfully atmospheric score from Masaru Sato. Toshiro Mifune gives a towering performance as the samurai who is equally as deadly with his wits as with his blade.
