Akira Kurosawa |Japan |1952 |142min
Language: Japanese with subtitles Cast: Takashi Shimura, Shin'ichi Himori


May 7:5:00 pm, 7:40 pm

One of the greatest achievements by Akira Kurosawa, Ikiru shows the director at his most compassionate—affirming life through an explora­tion of death. Takashi Shimura beautifully portrays Kanji Watanabe, an aging bureaucrat with stomach cancer who is impelled to find meaning in his final days. Presented in a radically conceived two­part structure and shot with a perceptive, humanistic clarity of vision, Ikiru is a multifaceted look at what it means to be alive.–The Criterion Collection

“If you have never seen it, you should. If you have seen it before, your admiration will only increase.”–Chicago Tribune
