Synopsis / Plot
Akira Kurosawa's Dreams comprises eight dream sequences, featuring impressive special effects and beautiful scenery from Japan. Kurosawa's dream sequences are elusive, metaphoric and influenced by Japanese legends, reflecting in some way impressions from his own life. In the sequence entitled 'Crows' Martin Scorsese stars as Vincent Van Gogh in a wheat field resembling one of the artist's paintings. Another dream sequence explores Kurosawa's fear of nuclear devastation, while others capture moments of magic such as a young boy who sees peach trees dancing around him. Akira Kurosawa's Dreams is the work of a mature cinematic genius.
