The Seven Samurai: The Hapless Lovers



Yes, you can kind of tell that "This Will End in Tears". I have substituted San Francisco's Japanese Tea Garden as background for the fields of flowers in the film, which seem to represent Nature at her most sublimely indifferent to human warfare.

Kurosawa was a genius! Tho' the film was only in B&W but your substitution works well :)

I love the Oriental theme you have going on here. Was Rex Harrison in that film? Its such a long time since i saw it.

Subby- thanks, I think the field of flowers in the original film IMPLIED a lot of color.

Jasmine- The Seven Samurai has a cast of Japanese actors, it is an early film of Kurasawa's

perfect backdrop - visited the sf japanese gardens last time I visited sf (in 2004) was sublime.

this pic is such a contrast to my current view....which resembles a white cow in a snowstorm, ....even the evergreens are are draped in a snowy cloak

Love the playfulness of your work, and how you bring it into the real world.

Always fun to visit here...

".....which seem to represent Nature at her most sublimely indifferent to human warfare"....isn't that the truth?! Nature does not care a wit about drama! I hope the samurai spares her! (you see.....I care! )

Celeste - define "spare" - well, actually, what happens between them is pretty much her idea as shown in the film.
