Seven samurai by Akira Kurosawa( Visual )

12 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in Japanese and No Linguistic content and held by 1,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This epic masterpiece is about a group of 16th century samurai who are hired to defend a small Japanese village that finds itself annually raided by an army of bandits who steal the meager crops harvested by the peasants. Tired of relinquishing their food supply but woefully inept in combat skills, the villagers decide to hire a band of samurai to protect them. In addition to the primary conflict between the villagers and the bandits, much of the tale revolves around young Katsushiro's coming-of-age, both sexually and emotionally. Kikuchiyo's search for acceptance forms the other major storyline. Indeed, everyone in Seven Samurai is searching: for adventure, for experience, for freedom from their oppressors

Résumé figurant sur la jaquette :"Moscou 1941, le guerre est déclarée. Boris s'est engagé pour le front comme volontaire, et avec sa fiancée Véronika, ils tardent à se séparer. Au-dessus d'eux passe un vol de cigognes. La guerre s'est installée, sans nouvelle de son fiancé, seule et esseulée, elle cède aux avances du cousin de Boris, un planqué peu glorieux, égoïste et distant. Délaissée, Véronika s'implique à sa manière dans le conflit en investissant son énergie à l'aide et au réconfort des soldats blessés rapatriés aux pays. Elle prend conscience de l'horreur de la guerre. Mais Véronika espère toujours le retour de Boris : elle continue donc de l'attendre. Pour elle vivre c'est aimer, oublier son amour c'est mourir."
