Review
Akira Kurosawa creates a powerful and serious film about a hardworking clerk, who discovers a zest for life when he discovers he is dying of cancer, rejecting an empty life for a local project turning a city dump into a playground. It's a long but rewarding and beautiful film that highlights the best in human nature. Highly recommended
