This 4K restoration was shown at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

One of the most thrilling movie epics of all time, Seven Samurai tells the story of a sixteenth-century village whose desperate inhabitants hire the eponymous warriors to protect them from invading bandits. The film seamlessly weaves philosophy and entertainment, delicate human emotions and relentless action, into a rich, evocative, and unforgettable tale of courage and hope.  Akira Kurosawa’s The Seven Samurai is not only a great film in its own right, but the source of a genre that would flow through the rest of the century.” —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times
