Red Beard

Directed by Akira Kurosawa

1965

Red Beard follows an altruistic rural clinic director and the young doctor he is training in 19th century Japan. At 185 minutes, the film is plodding, but purposeful, and its occasional melodrama is more than excused by its sincerity. A period piece of immediacy and conviction, Red Beard is thoughtful and heartfelt.

Would see.
