RELEASE DATE: November 24, 2015

Criterion presents the Blu-ray for 1952’s Ikiru, directed by Akira Kurosawa (Stray Dog).

Ikiru presents Kurosawa at his most compassionate – affirming life through an exploration of death. Takashi Shimura (Rashomon) beautifully portrays Kanji Watanabe, an aging bureaucrat with stomach cancer who is impelled to find meaning in his final days. Presented in a radically conceived two-part structure and shot with a perceptive, humanistic clarity of vision, Ikiru is a multifaceted look at what it means to be alive. | Watch the trailer.
