Another perfectly paced masterpiece from Masaki Kobayashi!
This brutal film focuses on a young man with humanist ideals trying to put them into action but is surrounded by wolves who have their own way.
We as an audience slowly begin to empathise with him as time goes on and feel his pain. Having honourable ideals is not enough, one must put them into action but is that possible? Cooperation is required from both parties that loathe each other.
