The Most Beautiful
"I'll say it again: one can't improve productivity without improving ones character." Call it a sophomore slump, growing pains, or a blatant spit in the face of propaganda, but this jumpy, cut-up and downright mechanical film is the furthest from what became Kurosawa's style. A lot of experiments -some are successful. There are building blocks & themes he uses later but this film is an exercise in self discovery.
