These days, people are more interested in Kurosawa than he is in being Kurosawa.
There's more narrative movement here than in Dreams, but the pedagogic humanism still gets bogged down in facile simplification.
A beautiful reminder from octogenarian Akira Kurosawa that he's still the master.
Mr. Gere gives a good, self-effacing performance in a role that's a little unreal. He speaks his own Japanese dialogue easily and is at the center of one of Mr. Kurosawa's most breathtaking moments.
Plain and simple, Rhapsody is mediocre pap. It's nothing compared with his previous work.
A delicately nuanced film about remembrance -- so delicate, perhaps, that it's not terribly memorable itself.
There is little drama in all of this, but Kurosawa still knows how to set out a strong ending.
Absorbing pacifist drama, looks at the links between East and West.
Sad to say, it is far from a major statement from one of our greatest living directors.
A touching heartfelt film by the octogenarian legendary Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa.
Rhapsody in August is an old man's film in the best possible sense. Though it stares death straight in the face, it is primarily interested in life.
Kurosawa's lovely meditation on the nature of American-Japanese relations could not come at a better time.
A fine little film by Kurosawa. Plain but evocative. I like late-stage Kurosawa.
Well,it isn't the worst Kurosawa,that's a gravity point.It's pathetic nonetheless.Piety and respect to the fruitful generation in spite of the elders' guidance and alternatively,the cycle continues by giving props to the what occurred in a critical epoch of a land e.g. the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima/Nagasaki.Props as in mournful homage.All's well that end's well but what's the utter point for all this?Just for Gere commercial?
Not one of Kurosawa's best, bust visually stunning.
pretty decent film. a late film for kurosawa made toward the end of his life, its one of my least favorite of his but still a great watch. this is a film about 4 kids spending the summer with their grandma in nagasaki reliving the events of the atomic bomb in 1945. richard gere appears in this film and was a little miscast. gere being in this film is maybe the only decision kurosawa has ever made that i would question, but this was still a solid film. a problem that i had as an american was that the japanese characters were a little condemning about the US dropping the a-bomb, which they have a right to be, but they never mention the fact that we dropped the bomb because they attacked us first. they make it sound like we dropped the a-bomb because we had nothing better to do that day. but it was still great to see the japanese perspective on a horific event in human history.
