Sugata Sanshirô - The Judo Saga (Kurosawa, 1943)

The master pupil of the new Judo school gets to know himself and love.

So far the most disappointing and only bad film by Kurosawa. There are some interesting things to study. The fight scene at the end is absolutely fantastically photographed and deserves detailed analysis, esp in regards to lighting.

Some shadow on a screen thing, but doesn't work either.

Scriptwise the story never really picks up.
