Dersu Uzala Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

A few months after his notorious suicide attempt, Japanese filmmaker [[Performer~P98309~Akira Kurosawa~akirakurosawa]] was regenerated by the notion of helming the first Russian/Japanese co-production. Co-scripted and directed by [[Performer~P98309~Kurosawa~akirakurosawa]], Dersu Uzala is the story of an elderly guide and Goldi hunter ([[Performer~P51367~Maxim Munzuk~maximmunzuk]]), who, at the turn of the century, agrees to shepherd a Russian explorer ([[Performer~P66824~Yuri Solomin~yurisolomin]]) and a troop of soldiers through the most treacherous passages of the Far East. The guide has been "one" with the land almost from birth, and is thus able to save his party from perishing. Four years in the making, Dersu Uzala won the 1976 Best Foreign Film Oscar and restored the flagging [[Performer~P98309~Akira Kurosawa~akirakurosawa]] to the top ranks of the Japanese film industry. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
