Tengoku to jigoku aka High and Low (Heaven and Hell)

Director: Akira Kurosawa
Genre: Crime / Drama / Thriller
Language: Japanese (w/ English subs)
Year of release: 1963

At a crucial point in his business life, executive Gondo learns that his son has been kidnapped and that the ransom demanded is near the amount Gondo has raised for a critical business deal. Gondo is prepared to pay the ransom - that is, until he learns that the kidnappers have mistakenly abducted not Gondo's son, but the child of Gondo's chauffeur. Now Gondo must decide whether the other man's child is equally worth saving.

excellent movie, keeps you interested all the way with the great story; this is like the series "Kidnapped" only condensed and just way better (we’re talking about Kurosawa here), definitely one of the classics of the genre!

8 / 10
