a documentary movie by Catherine CADOU
Eleven major film makers from Europe, America and Asia talk about Akira KUROSAWA and discover surprising influences on their own work. The director of this film, who was the Japanese master's interpreter for fifteen years, ties together these fascinating testimonies. Kurosawa was right when he said : "The more Japanese you are, the more universal you are."
