Kurosawa takes on the war genre in a unique film that, while it features some interesting action scenes, is more about testing the mettle and emotions of its characters. The frozen landscape is beautifully shot and this is a heavier film, in tone, than many earlier Kurosawa films.

A rare co-production from Kurosawa, this time with the Russians on board but still firmly in keeping with his humanist tradition.The location is the stunning Siberian tundra. Toshiro Mifune plays a hunter who rescues an army explorer in the wilds. Three years later the explorer returns and their friendship blossoms, but the hunter has inadvertently killed a tiger, an animal he holds in the highest reverence. The death of the tiger continues to haunt him, even when he seeks redemption in the 'civilized' world. A great story accompanied by beautiful cinematography. It's shot in 'scope so a widescreen is essential to see this at its best

Dersu is one of the most likable characters ever. Warm and touching movie about nature and friendship. Kurosawa's best.

In the same line of Kaspar and Elephant, Derzu is lovely man, that doesn't fit with the "regular" people. Based on a true story, the movie narrates the jorney of a russian adventurer, that finds not only new lands, but a new friend. Very moving and touching, and, as usual in Kurosawa, awesome shots. Delicious.
