''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 produc... read more

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... read more

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

In Medieval Japan, an elderly warlord retires, handing over his empire to his three sons. However, he vastly underestimates how the new-found power will corrupt them and cause them to turn on each other...and him.

1001 Movies ... my own version (1980's) (130 movies items)

" Notes: This flick is one of Akira Kurosawa’s most famous movies and probably his last masterpiece. In fact, the guy apparently spent decades prepping for this movie and I think it definitely shows on the screen. Indeed, he began writing the film 10 years before its release and he spent also ten years storyboarding every shot in the film as some paintings. This preparation went so far that ‘Kagemusha’, his previous directing effort, was actually some kind of 'practice' for the great Japan"

fernando posted a review 1 year, 2 months ago

“(OK) Even the stagey sequences are so rich and full of nternal action and gestures. The main King Learesque character goes wrong in every decision and even that he is so human and caring. The chorus around him is great, the clown, the blind boy in the edge of the abyss....” read more
