Dersu Uzala


Dir. Akira Kurosawa (1975)
Kurosawa’s only film shot outside of Japan, this superbly elegiac and somewhat Fordian epic, based on the memoirs of a Russian explorer, was made in Siberia and concerns the touching friendship that develops between him and an elderly forest-dwelling trapper determined to survive the ravages of old age and an often hostile natural world.
