“Kurosawa’s very faithful transplant [of Gorsky's classic] to the Tokyo slums, prerehearsed and shot with three cameras in long takes, makes astonishingly skilful use of space within the constricted main set (there are in fact only two), and is fascinating simply as a tour de force. Marvellous performances, too, mining a rich vein of ironic humour.” – Time Out (London)
