Seven Samurai - Akira Kurosawa

Quite liked it, certainly more in the league of High and Low than like Red Beard.

A village is repeatedly attacked and stripped by bandits, until they decide to hire samurai and fight back. The first samurai is found, and in turn a team of 7 is built. The defense is planned and there are a few surprises on the way.

Overall rather longish for the modern day viewer I suppose, but still interesting.
