Both the final film of this period in which Akira Kurosawa would directly wrestle with the demons of the Second World War and his most literal representation of living in an atomic age, the galvanizing I Live in Fear presents Toshiro Mifune as an elderly, stubborn businessman so fearful of a nuclear attack that he resolves to move his reluctant family to South America. With this mournful film, the director depicts a society emerging from the shadows but still terrorized by memories of the past and anxieties for the future. Toshiro Mifune needed only three feet.
I LIVE IN FEAR A film by Akira Kurosawa When a wealthy foundry owner decides to move his entire family from Tokyo to Brazil to escape the nuclear holocaust which he fears is imminent, his family, afraid of losing their status and inheritance tries to have him declared mentally incompetent. Made at the height of the Cold War, with the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki still a recent memory, this blazing attack on complacency stemmed from the same H-Bomb paranoia that gave birth to the Godzilla films. Kurosawa regular Toshiro Mifune delivers an extraordinary performance as a man twice his age , as does Takashi Shimura, who two years before had starred as the cancer-stricken clerk in Ikiru.
