Akira Kurosawa’s Dreams (1990)
120 minutes – certificate PG – in Japanese with English subtitles
Directed by Akira Kurosawa
Starring Akira Terao, Mitsuko Baisho, Mieko Harada, Martin Scorsese, Chishu Ryu
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.
