Akira Kurosawa understood wonderfully well one of the crucial aspects of art: art is not the expression of (the artist's) private emotions, but the engendering of emotions in the heart of the spectator (listener, reader); in another words, the spectator could really share the joys and pains of the characters on the screen. In order to 'arouse' emotions in the viewer, the film storyline has to reflect 'real' life. Films have to be 'humanistic'. Therefore also, the directing gotta be focused on 'natural' acting, on doing things 'naturally'. With his entire heart, a director has to mold the various elements of a film into a 'beautiful' (worthy of viewing) final product of art.In this documentary, Akira Kurosawa comments on all aspects of the film making process, from the seeds of a storyline (a novel or a dialog heard in a train station), over the shooting itself (using sometimes simultaneously up to 8 various cameras), to the confection of the soundtrack (music could not be a distraction, but can be used as a counterpoint of the action or the editing). His shooting includes some very characteristic camera movements, like the panning with a telephoto lens which gives the impression of a moving camera, or the combination of panning and focusing. Akira Kurosawa relied also on key members in his crews, like Sano Takeji for light and colors, Takeo Sato for camera work or Fumio Hayasaka for music. His films have the highest makeover rate in the film history.This documentary is a gotta see for all film buffs, and certainly for all Akira Kurosawa fans.
