I am glad with my choice to being introduced to his work through 'Ran'. The version I saw was on DVD and the movie had gone through better color treatment and there was additional suppliments to the DVD which includes

"20th of December, DVD Pitkähkö tauko leffojen parissa teki terää, sillä tämän elokuvan parissa aika kului huomattavasti ripeämmin kuin useamman muun kaksi ja puolituntisen pätkän parissa. Akira Kurosawan viimeiseksi jäänyt elokuva on visuaalisesti vaikuttava yhdistelmä Kuningas Learia ja japanilaista historiaa.
