  • The problem is, the caste of samurai is different from that of farmers, and the two distrust each other, so the villagers wouldn't even know how to approach a samurai with such a request
  • Will samurai even consider such a modest proposal

      “The Seven Samurai” filmed by Akira Kurosawa in 1954 still remains one of the most popular movies of all times. Almost a three and a half hours long, the movie runs with subtitles, so be warned if you find having to read subtitles annoying.

      The story takes place in 16 century Japan, torn apart by civil


      war.

      A small village suffers from being repeatedly raided by bands of outlaws.

      A large band comes and, remembering that they’ve already been through this village, decides to leave it alone for a while and come back later, when the crops are grown and there would be something to take.

      One of the villagers overhears that ...


      • from a hiding place and informs the rest of the folks.

        They decide to hire some samurai (professional soldiers) to defend the village.

        The problem is, the caste of samurai is different from that of farmers, and the two distrust each other, so the villagers wouldn’t even know how to approach a samurai with such a

        request.

        Another problem is pay: the farmers are very poor, all they can offer is lodgings and food.

        Will samurai even consider such a modest proposal?

        A group of villagers goes to the nearest town to try and find some unemployed samurai who would be interested in protecting the village.

        One by one, a team of seven is gathered.
