Customer Review

on 30 May 2013
Okay, so the four films as a whole aren't as memorable or influencial as Kurosawa's greatest, more respected titles, but they're still an enjoyable watch and an interesting insight into Kurosawa's early filmography. Though a select few are borderline propaganda (admittedly "The Most Beautiful" is, reflectively, 100% Japanese ww2 propaganda) - all films are entertaining. Personally I found The Men Who Tread on the Tiger's Tail to be the most enjoyable.

Contents (subtitles, extras, transfer quality),:
No image issues here, the subtitles are good, too. The extra's aren't great, however. A nice booklet is included, and some rare cut scenes from Sanshiro Sugata are also featured, but overall, for a BFI investment and project, I expected a little more for such a project.

The lack of extras aside, I am utterly enthralled with this purchase: it's nigh on impossible to find a copy of The Most Beautiful and Sanshiro Sugata Part 2 in English, For approximately £20, you're spending £4 per film, which is a reasonable and worth-while investment. Don't knock this aside for cheap imports from Korea or China: this is all you need. The quality of film and subtitles will confirm this for you.
