Very fine early Kurosawa movie, made between 'Seven Samurai' and 'Throne Of Blood', 'I Live in Fear' tells the intimate story of a Tokyo family facing the threat of nuclear war. The father (Mifune, uncomfortably playing a character twice his age) wants to emigrate to a farm in Brazil, his family don't want to and try to have him incarcerated. This is a little nugget of a movie, a time capsule from the Atomic Age.
