Trailer for The Bad Sleep Well.

Something is rotten in Japan in this engaging drama by acclaimed director Akira Kurosawa. Toshirô Mifune stars as Koichi Nishi, the secretary to the president of a housing corporation, who seeks revenge for his father's murder. At Koichi's marriage to Kieko (Kyôko Kagawa), the president's daughter, memories of the death are stirred, and soon corruption within the organization is exposed. Unknown to the officials, Koichi is the hidden force behind the mysterious happenings that begin to weigh on their consciences and ruin their lives. As the story moves toward its tragic conclusion, spectral figures lurk in the darkened streets while others plot and scheme within their shining corporate offices. Loosely based on Shakespeare's "Hamlet," Kurosawa's film skillfully combines themes from the classic play with a stylish 1960s film noir mood.
