Yuzo Kayama in Red Beard

Red Beard

1965 NR

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.
