Customer Review

on 2 January 2004
You can see the process that was to flower in Kurosawa's later films, taking shape here. Yes the search sequence in the film is perhaps a little too long, but the story, written by Kurosawa, is sound, and the drama leads you on. The chase scene used in this film was the inspiration behind the French Connection, and the telephone call from the hotel was adapted William Friedkin, to help illustrate Gene Hackmans charichter.
The weather, is hot, and this is set up with panting dog from the very onset of the films titles. Stray Dog is a film about the difference in outlook between a calm, wise but jaded senior figure (Takashi Shimura) and his young impaitentent but more forgiving rookie (Toshiro Mifune). See this film, if for no other reason than the wonderful backdrop of post war japan.
