Synopsis

Akira Kurosawa's THE BAD SLEEP WELL adopts the American gangster-film style to weave a fascinating tale of corporate greed. Toshiro Mifune stars as a young executive who marries his boss' daughter to infiltrate "the family," expose their corrupt business dealings, and avenge his own father's murder. As Mifune falls in love with his wife, his plans for revenge fall apart. Meanwhile, another executive (Takashi Shimura) plots his downfall.
