Akira Kurosawa's slimmest feature, running only an hour, is also one of the best of his early period. Made in 1945 but not released until 1953, it's about a celebrated Japanese general fleeing another general who happens to be his brother. Based on Kanjincho, a Kabuki drama that's said to be as well-known in the East as Robin Hood is in the West, this film is pitched as a parody of Kabuki, meant to undermine the feudal values of the original.
