Synopsis

Sanjuro is a drifting samurai who arrives in a 19th century Japanese town looking for work. He discovers via the local innkeeper that the town is split by two warring factions, each headed by powerful gangsters. Sanjuro quickly sees the financial opportunities for a mercenary such as himself, and in no time he is playing both factions off against each other. All is going well, it seems - until the arrival of Unosuke, the offspring of one of the gang leaders, a development which means Sanjuro must use all of his wits and cunning to survive.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
