Akira Kurosawa’s Dreams
Directed by Akira Kurosawa
Starring Akira Terao, Mitsuko Baisho, Mieko Harada, Martin Scorsese, Chishu Ryu

120 minutes -- certificate PG -- in Japanese with English subtitles

A film made up of 8 sequences, including:
-- a child watches a fox wedding in the forest
-- mountaineers caught in a blizzard come across a snow spirit
-- an army commander sees the ghost of a soldier
-- an art student enters the works of Vincent van Gogh, played by Martin Scorsese.

After making many masterpieces such as ‘Rashomon’, ‘Throne of Blood’ and popular hits ‘Yojimbo‘ and ‘Sanjuro’, the great director was inspired by his recurring reveries for one of his last films.

Using painterly composition and sumptuous imagery, he imagines childlike wonder and ancient folklore, explores modern fears about war and nuclear disasters, and expresses personal reflections about mankind’s bond with nature.

Nominated for 8 awards of the Japanese Academy, winning for best music score, and best cinematography and film score from the Mainichi media.

Counted among the top 10 films of the year by the Cahiers du Cinema
