Movie Summary

Director:
Akira Kurosawa
Released:
1990
Rating:
PG
Akira Kurosawa's Dreams is a surreal 1990 film from the master of Japanese Cinema. The film uses lush imagery and non-linear storytelling to recount eight dreams that reflect on the personal life of the director of "The Seven Samurai." The first episode shows a young boy (Mitsunori Izaki) ignoring his mother's (Mitsuko Baisho) warnings as he watches a wedding of foxes in the woods. The same boy then converses with peach trees that have been axed down in the woods. In the midst of a terrible blizzard, a group of mountain climbers struggle to reach base camp. A man (Akira Terao) discovers the Japanese military inside a deserted tunnel, then emerges into a version of a Van Gogh painting, The Crows, where he meets the artist (Martin Scorsese). A nuclear meltdown results human mutants. Finally, an elderly man (Chishu Ryu) greets the man in a peaceful rural village. This unusual, impressionistic film resonates with imagery from Kurosawa's previous films.
