They have several Kurosawa DVDs (including his later films) which are otherwise impossible or at least difficult to get hold of in the West. Very cheap too.

...if you're talking about the Mei Ah (a.k.a. the HK M@d@cy) discs... avoid!

I don't have any of these, but everything I've read about them states that the prints used are awful and the English subtitles aren't that good.

Thanks for the warning re: quality. I was just ecstatic to see some of the less well-known Kurosawa in *any* shape or form. I've already ordered Madadayo, which I needed, period (long story, but I'm doing a paper on ageing and need it as a reference, regardless of quality). Since it has cost me 8 pounds (incl postage) I'm not too worried re: costs in this case. However, I'll scrutinise it before ordering any more.
