"Ainoa kunnolla katsomani Kurosawa. Ohjaus on todella kaunista aina mahtavia maisemaotoksia myöten ja muutenkin kaikinpuolin eheä kokonaisuus, vaikka pituutta löytyykin. Todellista värien juhlaa."

The Best of 80s (50 movies items)

"Directed by Akira Kurosawa. A story of greed, a lust for power, and ultimate revenge. The Great Lord Hidetora Ichimonji has decided to step aside to make room for the younger blood of his three sons, Taro, Jiro, and Saburo, the Lord's only wish now being to live out his years as an honored guest in the castle of each of his sons in turn. While the older two sons flatter their father, the youngest son attempts to warn him of the folly of expecting the three sons to remain united; enraged at the y"

Another great Kurosawa film...

“Ran is a very heartfelt, impactful, experiencing and even quite a shocking motion picture that is made by a legendary filmmaker. Ran is a real epic story that is typical of the language spoken and the same with the settings, cinematography, costumes and make-up within the nation of where it was filmed as well as the epic genre. I was blown away by how good each of those filming qualities was. I think this film is adapted from Shakespeare's famous play King Lear. It isn't a directed adaptation of the play but it is the closest it can be. This film is an epic that it very action-packed and is filled with raw emotion. My DVD I have at home of it is a 12A/PG-13 DVD and I cannot believe it was either a 15/R or 18/R-17 because it was a very gruesome and graphic story. The blood isn't that real b” read more

In The Running As Akira's Best



Before movies like Crouching Tiger/ Hidden Dragon & Hero came along & added the artistically flair fantasy elements to these types of epic movies, there was Ran. 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. And, the added high budget seemed to compromise his vision not in the slightest. Instead, it seemed to open up the potentiality that Mr. Kurosawa had holding in his already abundant visionary dreams.

Definitely my favorite of his works.

Summer holiday (198 movies items)

"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 "

"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.

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

''Are there no gods... no Buddha?''

“''Men prefer sorrow over joy... suffering over peace!''

An elderly lord abdicates to his three sons, and the two corrupt ones turn against him.

Tatsuya Nakadai: Lord Hidetora Ichimonji

Born in 1910 Japan, Akira Kurosawa first studied painting before moving into film in the late 1930s. A well-known director in Japan throughout the 1940s, his 1950 production of Rashomon launched him to international acclaim; and throughout the remainder of his long career he was widely acknowledged as among the world's greatest film directors. The creator of such films as The Seven Samurai, Ikiru, and Yojimbo. Released in 1985, RAN would be among his final films and is generally felt to be among his finest.
