"Liian kauan odotti tämäkin elokuva katseluvuoroaan. Kauneudella ei ole rajaa kun Ran pääsee valloilleen. Huikean veriset ja kauniit taistelukohtaukset vailla sanoja ja älämölöä, taistelu on todella elokuvassa taidetta. Kuvaus ja puvustus loistavat, näyttelytyö on taivaallista ja Kurosawan ote elokuvaan on vaikuttava. Näyttelijöistä pitää esille nostaa Mieko Harada Kaeden roolista, Tatsuya Nakadai Hidetoran roolista ja Peterin suoritus Kyoamina. Näistä ehkä hienoin suoritus on "

"Kirosawa's color epic has a slow pace with a bloated running time. While it's beautiful shot and performed and the story strong, it's in the middle of the great filmmaker's rated films."

Some of the most beautiful & grand visuals ever in an Akira Kurosawa film. The fact that his name was associated with this project guaranteed this film's sweeping quality.

"13.7.2009, DVD Shakespearen King Lear on ihan outo juttu mulle, en siis oo lukenut tai nähnyt siitä minkäänlaista filmatisointia (jos niitä edes muita on), mutta jos joskus tulen sellaisen katsomaan niin on kyllä harvinaisen vaikea uskoa että se onnistuisi olemaan tätä parempi. Hidetoran matka henkilökohtaiseen helvettiin ja hulluuteen on vangitsevaa katsottavaa, taustanaan upeat Japanin vihreät landscapet heti alusta lähtien, sekä erittäin hyvät pienieleiset musiikit. Loistava k"

"Aivan helvetin eeppinen elokuva, näyttelijät ovat loistavia, musiikki on mahtavaa ja taistelukohtauksien ohjaus on upeaa. Ainoa leffa Kurosawalta jonka olen nähnyt värinä ja se oli paras, eeppisin ja viihdyttävin."

Akira Kurosawa's crowning achievement...

“"Man is born crying. When he has cried enough, he dies."

To movie aficionados and cinema enthusiasts, Akira Kurosawa's name is synonymous with the title of 'cinematic god'. It's irrefutable that throughout Kurosawa's career (spanning over several decades) the director has created wonderful narratives and absolutely magnificent visual delights. To some people Kurosawa is the greatest thing to hit film since light. In this cynical and incredulous modern film-going society, neophyte students of film occasionally harbour doubts regarding the existence of this so-called cinematic god. Ran is an epic film capable of making believers out of anyone. The film is a remarkable visual spectacle composed of beautiful cinematography and gorgeous, oversaturated colours. Kurosawa is a filmic gur” read more

Born in 1910 Japan, Akira Kurosawa first studied painting before moving into film in the late 1930s.

A Rain King posted a review 7 years, 7 months ago

Ran (also known as 'Chaos')

“When I asked for an option of a good Japanese movie, I was introduced to Kurosawa's movies. Worried about being bored with a b&w, I chose Ran which was shot in 1985 in color. 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

The movie is about a fearful man, Hidetora who self-declared himself as a lord through ruthless killings and wars. It is the same man who is also a father of 3 son. After a series of events, the father began to realise which of the sons is loyal.

The astonishing scene of the movie would be the burning of the castle and also the numbers (in hundreds) of extras and horses used in making” read more

Kurosawa's adaptation of King Lear

“I was more than pleased with the Masterworks Edition, although I've heard (but not seen) that the Criterion DVD is the best. See exerpt of review below, reverberates the sentiments I've read:

"However, this gem's transition [Ran] to DVD has been cringe-worthy on Region 1. The Fox Lorber edition is noted as being one of the worst transfers in existence, and while many were satisfied with the Masterworks edition, most who were familiar with the film (and many who weren't) recognized that there was an obscene amount of digital manipulation. The result is the film's colors looked utterly artificial and the film has nowhere near the serene look it normally does."” read more
