The Quiet Duel

is a 1949 Japanese film directed by Akira Kurosawa.


Toshirō Mifune (in the second of many films with Kurosawa), plays a young idealistic doctor, still a virgin, who works at his father's (Takashi Shimura) clinic in a small and seedy district. However, during the war, he contracts syphilis from the blood of a patient when he cuts himself during an operation. Treating himself in secret and tormented by his conscience and celibacy, he rejects his heartbroken fiancée without explanation.



The R1 DVD was released by BCI Eclipse, as the first title in their "Director's Series".
