Dersu Uzala

Dersu Uzala ★★★★½

I'm almost at the end of my Kurosawa journey and I couldn't be more enamored with the erudite director. Dersu Uzala is another gem in his oeuvre. This is a story of a memorable friendship, an ethereal bond that portrays the best of humanity and Kurosawa, once again, uses nature to enrich the story, embellishing the scenery with snow-covered landscapes rippling away into the distance, the icebergs melting to a roaring flood, and the labyrinth of jungle that only a guide like Dersu can keep you on the right track.
