Sanshiro Sugata / Judo Saga / Judo Story (1943) DVD5 Criterion Collection
Sanshiro Sugata is about a young, inexperienced man named Sanshiro Sugata who comes to the city to apprentice at a jujitsu school. His first night, he sees Yano, a master of judo, in action; he is impressed by this more spiritual form of martial arts and he begs to be Yano's student. As the youth learns technique, he realizes he also must learn to accept the spiritual dimension of strength and control. Sanshiro's true education isn't just the learning of judo; it's the growth and maturity of his mind and soul. But his journey is fraught with obstacles, embodied by jujitsu's finest master, the implacable Higaki, who vows to kill Sanshiro in a midnight fight on a windswept mountainside.
