Product Notes

Based on KING'S RANSOM, a crime novel by Ed McBain, HIGH AND LOW stars Toshirt Mifune as Kingo Gondo, a wealthy, hardworking businessman. As Gondo plans a coup that will secure his position as the head of his Yokohama shoe company, he is contacted by a criminal who informs him that he's kidnapped his son. The crook demands a huge ransom for the boy's return-an amount that has taken Gondo 30 years of labor to amass. As the worried industrialist prepares to pay the ransom, he discovers that his son is safe at home-the kidnapper has mistakenly snatched his chauffeur's son. The question quickly becomes: Does Gondo abandon his plans to pay off the criminal, or does he do the honorable thing and help save his driver's child? This moral dilemma drives Akira Kurosawa's intelligent, detailed thriller that features Mifune in a thoughtful, nuanced performance as a man forced to make a startlingly difficult decision. Director: Akira Kurosawa Star: Toshirt Mifune, Tatsuya Mihashi, Tatsuya Nakadai, Tsutomu Yamazaki, Special Features: 2-Disc Set Anamorphic Widescreen 2.35 Audio: Dolby Digital 1.0 - Japanese Subtitles - English Optional Running Time: 143 minutes.
