A vengeful young man marries the daughter of a corrupt industrialist in order to seek justice for his father's suicide. (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0054460/)

Why this film is unforgettable:

1. The tainted memories of betrayal that fuel this meeting of Japanese film noir and Shakespeare’s Hamlet

2. Kurosawa’s first feature produced by his own independent studio

3. The endearing wedding toast that boasts “If you make my sister unhappy, I swear I’ll kill you!”
