This is a very slow-paced film with no plot connecting the vignettes. Compare it to Fantasia in terms of viewability. It's beautiful to look at and makes some poignant statements about morality, duty, compassion, self-awareness and other personal and societal issues.

It is pretty clearly an experimental film on Kurosawa's part, complete with shaky dolly shots that belie it's budgetary constraints.

It's a great film if you are looking for something slow, pretty, thoughtful and not particulary coherent.

If you are in the mood for something with character development, storyline and conflict, this is not going to do it for you.
