When the samurai discover a hidden cache of samurai weaponry and armour, stolen off of samurai that were killed after wandering into the village, the group reacts with anger and indignance.

Seven Samurai was the film that helped me really appreciate foreign films beyond Godzilla, and started my attempts to seriously seek out other great foreign filmmakers.

When a samurai finds a bunch of old samurai armor, the other samurais are angry and sad for a little bit, but then move on and don't really speak of it again.
