Although a little expensive, this is a great buy for any Toshiro Mifune fan. In short, the dvd quality is great, the story is great, and the acting is phenomenal.

A touching and heartfelt story about a man's journey for meaning and love in his life. There is a lot of action but it takes a backseat to the story. Themes of love, devotion, and honor are the main focus of these movies. I think it would appeal to all serious movie buffs.
