Unique movie from 1958, a real hit in the cinemas in it's times. I don't want to spoil you the full plot of the film, but I will tell you now it's a very good movie to watch online. The Hidden Fortress is kind of surprise of 1958, the rest of movies made in Japan wasn't as successful as this one. Actors play and the music make a lot of scenes in this movie really unforgetable. The movie was made in Japan by a great director. Enjoy watching, if you want to load your own subtitles you can do it in the player settings, you can also change quality to full hd.
