Red Beard

1965 Rated NR 3hr 5m

A testament to the goodness of humankind, director Akira Kurosawa's medical drama chronicles the relationship between an arrogant young doctor (Yuzo Kayama) and the compassionate clinic director (Toshirô Mifune) who teaches him to appreciate the lives of their destitute patients. Mifune, in his last role for Kurosawa, gives a powerhouse performance as the dignified yet passionate director who guides his embittered intern to maturity.
