Akira Kurosawa is a great director. Look him up online and watch all of his movies. I saw by chance The Samurai 1 and had to find parts 2 and 3. Made me buy the english translated Musashi and its one of my absolute favorites.

Grave of the Fireflies
The only movie that ever made me cry like a little baby. An absolute must-see !

Hana To Alice
Very funny and touching movie about 2 schoolgirls growing up.

Awesome movie by Takeshi Kitano based on a Kabuki play.

Shichinin no samurai
Without a doubt one of the best movies ever made in the history of filmmaking. If you haven't seen it, you should be ashamed of yourself. ;)
