Kurosawa was constantly alert to the dramatic and visual opportunities offered by weather and the natural landscape, and in the finest of all his samurai films – in which a band of warriors agree to defend an impoverished village repeatedly suffering raids by vicious bandits – he makes memorably effective use of a torrential downpour in the virtuoso climactic battle sequence.
