Our six-film retrospective of some of the most acclaimed works by Japanese auteur Akira Kurosawa continues with his acclaimed 1952 drama IKIRU.

One of his greatest achievements, Ikiru is a compassionate drama that finds the filmmaker exploring themes of life and death at the most basic levels. Takashi Shimura beautifully portrays Kanji Watanabe, an aging bureaucrat with stomach cancer who is afraid he will die without his life ever having had meaning. Presented in a radically conceived two­-part structure and shot with a perceptive, humanistic clarity of vision, Ikiru is a multifaceted look at what it means to live a life of balance — and of meaning.

Directed by Akira Kurosawa. 1952. 139 minutes. Not Rated.

“Kurosawa achieves the piercing emotion and poetry of the Italian neorealists, but by opposite means: he doesn’t make the camera disappear; instead… he deploys his camera so sharply and unerringly that it seems to take X-rays of the spirit.” -Richard Brody, New Yorker

“Kurosawa’s eclectic style is a delight: his striking, varied compositions reflecting the old man’s journey from darkness to some kind of light right until the moving finale.” -Wally Hammond, Time Out

“I think this is one of the few movies that might actually be able to inspire someone to lead their life a little differently.” -Roger Ebert, Chicago-Sun Times
