The Famous Japanese Filmmaker

Akira Kurosawa was the first Japanese filmmaker to achieve international acclaim. His film, Seven Samurai, about a band of leaderless samurai who defend a village from bandits, introduced the honorable Japanese warrior to the world. It later inspired the acclaimed cowboy film The Magnificient Seven, and to this day, still has great influence on movies - The Last Samurai, anyone?

While he was most famous for his samurai flicks, he also made fils (kiru and No Regrets for Our Youth) about modern society, many of which are still considered masterpieces. He also made Shakespearean movies, adapting Macbeth and King Lear into movies that were uniquely Japanese.
