THE BAD SLEEP WELL
A film by Akira Kurosawa
Koichi Nishi (Toshiro Mifune) is a grieving son seeking revenge for the suicide of his father. By assuming a new identity he rises through the ranks of the Public Corporation and cynically marries the president's daughter to better infiltrate the company and expose the corrupt practice that was responsible for his father's death. However, as Koichi falls in love with his wife, disaster looms.
The first feature brought out under the aegis of Kurosawa's own production company is an impressive tale of greed, corporate corruption and revenge. It is a powerful indictment of the dark side of business and politics with distinct overtones of Hamlet.
The Bad Sleep Well was shot in glorious Tohoscope and has previously only been available in a shortened international version - BFI video is proud to finally release the film in its uncut, original form,
