High and Low 12A

Part of Japanese Golden Age
Akira Kurosawa, Japan, 1963, 143m.

Our screening on 21 April will be introduced by season curator George Crosthwait.


Toshiro Mifune is unforgettable as Kingo Gondo, a wealthy industrialist whose family becomes the target of a cold-blooded kidnapper in High and Low, the highly influential domestic drama and police procedural from director Akira Kurosawa. Adapting Ed McBain's detective novel King's Ransom, Kurosawa moves effortlessly from compelling race-against-time thriller to exacting social commentary, creating a diabolical treatise on contemporary Japanese society.

Please arrive promptly - we do not show adverts.
