It's the nose.

Actually, the winner and the girl in the middle could be sisters or related... They almost look the same...

Throne of Blood * May 5

A marvelous opportunity to experience the many extraordinary films
of Japan's Akira Kurosawa (1910-1998). He bridged the gap between the
auteur and the popular filmmaker and in the process made Japanese cinema a
vital part of the US-International filmgoer's menu from the 1940s to the
1990s. Over that extraordinary half-century career Kurosawa, in opening the
door to Japanese cinema, contributed to the undoing of the crass racial
stereotyping of Japan, its people, and their culture by World War II
propaganda. Akira Kurosawa's films are personal moral tales told as
riveting dramas. They are shaped by an exciting mercurial blending of
dynamic physicality coupled with the most tender trop humane sensibilities;
his characters are trapped and held by the powerful torque of personal
desire pulling against individual and communal social responsibility. Add
to that Kurosawa's alternately quiet and raucous ribald sense of humor and
his use of familiar faces - Toshiro Mifune and Takashi Shimura, who, in a
wide range of roles, set the table for a spectacular cinema feast that
gratifies all the senses. How did he do it? Kurosawa melded popular
elements of European-US film genre with Japanese aesthetics and
sensibilities, and in so doing was responsible for drawing attention to the
unique art of Japanese cinema. His artistry belied the old adage that East
is East and West is West and never the twain shall meet. With the creation
of a new pristine print of Seven Samurai the Cinema Arts Centre celebrates
the 50th anniversary of one of Akira Kurosawa's most popular masterpieces of
his singular half-century career that began in the 1940s and lasted to the
1990s. The Cinema offers a wonderful mix of some of the highlights of his
awesome filmmaking career: Rashomon (1950), Seven Samurai (1954), Throne of
Blood (1957), Yojimbo (1961), High and Low (1963), and Madadayo (1993), his
last film made just prior to his death in 1998 at age 88.
