Dir. Akira Kurosawa (1952). One of the major postwar Japanese films, elegiac, but also quirkishly funny, this is the intensely moving drama of an aging widower, a petty governent official who discovers he has cancer. Takashi Shimura is superb in the central rolethrough his performance in this picture he measures up with the top film actors anywhere.
