Dersu Uzala

Directed by Akira Kurosawa


Dersu Uzala is a Russian language film by the Japanese director, Akira Kurosawa, about the friendship between a Russian explorer and a Goldi hunter in the Siberian wilderness. Less vivid and more contemplative than his earlier, mostly better, works, Dersu Uzala is slowly paced, but surprisingly touching.

Would see.

  1. I enjoyed Dersu Uzala. It was more effusive than the few other Kurosawa films I have seen. The contemplative nature blended well with the Siberian landscape. It reminded me of the more recent Russian film “Leviathan” in its epic length and use of sweeping views to suggest extrospection.

  2. I haven’t seen Dersu Uzala, but based on your review, it sounds similar to Madadayo, a film I really enjoyed. I’ll have to make sure to add this one to my viewing queue!
