That's the film I mentioned as "Nora Inu", it's known as "Stray Dog" in Finland as well. And why not "The Driver" seen as samourai film? But Walter Hill doesn't have Kurosawa's humanity or even caring for the people he depicts. Hill's films lack human feelings. And they have been very very bad for at least last five years, e.g. "Trespass"...
