I am trying to find an old Black and white film. I believe it is Japanese.A drifter comes to a village and sees a woman sweeping away sand that blew in. He compares the act to the futility of life. Do you know the name of this movie? Can someone tell me the title of this film?

    Hello, it sounds like Akira Kurosawa's "Yojimbo" (1961). It was based on the 1927 Dashiell Hammett gangster novel “The Red Harvest”. Kurosawa's film later formed the basis for "A Fistful of Dollars" (1964) and "Last Man Standing" (1996).
    Yojimbo is a 1961 film directed by Akira Kurosawa. The film narrate the story of a ronin (master less samurai), performed by Toshirō Mifune, who came to a small town where competing crime lords make their money from gambling.
    A ronin persuades each crime lord to hire him as defense from the other. The samurai, in the end feigning to be on Ushitora's side, persuades Ushitora to attack. After defeating his enemies in a figure of confronts, encompassing setting shoot to their home, the army is murdered via the ronin. The name of the film translates as "bodyguard". The ronin calls himself Kuwabatake Sanjuro (meaning "Mulberry Field thirty-year-old"), which he appears to produce upward whereas gazing at a mulberry field via the town. Thus, the film can be sighted as an early instance of the "Man with No Name" idea (which formerly emerges in a figure of novels, including Dashiell Hammett's Red Harvest).
