I Live in Fear Film Poster


At the height of the Cold War, ageing Japanese foundry owner Kiichi Nakajima decides that he and his entire family must emigrate to Brazil in order to find safety from potential nuclear attack. The rest of the family, unwilling to sell up and move, attempt to have Kiichi declared mentally incompetent. Akira Kurosawa, more renowned for period films like 'Rashomon' (1950) and 'Seven Samurai' (1954), directs this contemporary drama which is seen as his attack on the complacency of most of the world to the threat of the Cold War and the atomic bomb.
