That one eludes me

I love Kurosawa (both "Ran" and "Seven Samurai" rank among my favorites) and appreciate what he was trying to do but the emotional impact that he's clearly going for was completely lost on me. And no, it's not a "lost in translation" issue- foreign films have the ability to move me as much as US films. Even that famous swing scene- it's beautifully shot but the life-affirming sentiment just doesn't seem earned. I realize I'm in the minority though so the fault is probably mine.
