Sanshiro Sugata Part II

Sanshiro Sugata Part II

Directed by Akira Kurosawa


Sanshiro Sugata Part II, based on Tsuneo Tomita’s novel and a sequel to Sanshiro Sugata, is a martial arts film. The film isĀ frustratingly propagandistic and limited by the technology of its time. Sanshiro Sugata Part II evinces Kurosawa’s skill at pacing action and choreographing movement, but presages little of his later brilliance.

Would not see.
