There are two equally good parts to this film: The struggle of a business man over his greed/ambition and his morals and the mobilization of the police to hunt for a kidnapper. Smart crime, if not a deranged criminal, there were shades of M in the hunt. Of particular interest was the heroin addicts/dance hall. Far from warring feudal Japan. Of course as it is a Kurosawa film, itís excellent.
