Some international directors didn’t just learn from Kurosawa… they remade his films wholesale.

George Lucas has acknowledged that Akira Kurosawa’s The Hidden Fortress inspired parts of his own saga. Nicholas Barber looks at just how far the similarities go.

 

Peasants aside, Lucas has said that the similarities between Star Wars and The Hidden Fortress are “more of a coincidence than anything else”, but you don’t have to peer too closely at Kurosawa’s film to spot images, settings and techniques that crop up in Lucas’s trilogies. There is the corpulent slave owner who could be a cousin of Jabba the Hutt; there are the mossy forests which anticipate the Ewoks’ Endor; and there are the horizontal wipes which both directors use to transition between scenes.

 

The first Star Wars trilogy, in contrast, is the story of Luke Skywalker. The most significant moments are handed to the men, whether those men are humans, Wookiees or robots, and, aside from Leia, there are no female characters with much to do. When you factor in Uki’s aged servant and the freed slave, The Hidden Fortress features three times as many strong women as all three original Star Wars episodes put together – and there’s not a single gold bikini.

 

Portanto... copiou o filme e tornou-o machista ao gosto dos idosos produtores de Hollywood. Vou ver o filme do Kurosawa.

"I think that in order to find reality, each must search for his own universe, look for the details that contribute to this reality that one feels under the surface of things. To be an artist means to search, to find and look at these realities. To be an artist means never to look away."

Akira Kurosawa
March 23, 1910 — September 6, 1998
