Two Line Reviews - #135

Movie: Dersu Uzala (Russian,1975)

Plot: An army brigade posed with a daunting task of a topographical survey in the thick mountain forests of Russia,find an able guide and companion in a hunter Dersu Uzala. The army captain & Uzala form a special bonding and they part ways only to unite after 5 years & when Uzala is forced to live in the city, he finds he and the forest are inseparable.

  • Kurosawa deviates with this Russian film & the nobility & good ways of the film's prime characters win the hearts of the viewers.
  • The locations & sequences, the typical wrath of forests portrayed in this forest travelogue are thoroughly enjoyable.
  • The guys who play Captain Arseniev & Dersu Uzala show the unshakable bond in the best possible way.
One can be enthused by this film if one loves watching the travails & adventures in forests and hills. There isn't much for those who donot fall under that category.

My Rating: 9.3/10
