Manufacturer Description

By turns tragic and transcendent, Akira Kurosawa s Dodes'ka-den follows the daily lives of a group of people barely scraping by in a slum on the outskirts of Tokyo. Yet as desperate as their circumstances are, each of them--the homeless father and son envisioning their dream house; the young woman abused by her uncle; the boy who imagines himself a trolley conductor--finds reasons to carry on. Kurosawa's unforgettable film was made at a tumultuous moment in his life. And all of his hopes, fears, and artistic passion are on fervent display in this, his gloriously shot first color film.
