Shichinin No Samurai - Seven Samurai

Directed by Akira Kurosawa,
Awesome director and writer,
And I just found out that his birthday and my birthday is only 3 days apart,
Of course not mentioning the years.
Shichinin No Samurai is a great classic film that you have to watch,
It's a black and white movie (1954) lasting for about 160 mins.
I can assure you that this 160 mins will be one of the best movie moments in your life.

The basic story line is about farmers finding 7 samurai in order to fight the bandits.
Some knowledge in Japanese culture will greatly enhance the interpretation of the film,
Such as class level (samurai, farmer, etc) and history background.

Here's the picture of the seven samurai-

I can't wait to watch more mater pieces by Akira Kurosawa.
