Shichinin no Samurai (Seven Samurai)

Akira Kurosawa’s masterpiece. One of the greatest movies of all time.
Shichinin no Samurai is based in sixteenth century Japan which is in the throes of a civil war. Taking advantage of the prevailing anarchy, bandits plunder villages, taking away their food and women. A group of seven samurai come together to defend one such village.
The plot is simple, but the way it has been executed is great. It has a variety of interesting characters, all portrayed beautifully. And even though the movie is about three and a half hours long, there is no boring moment.
