IKIRU (1952)

Takashi Shimura gives an extraordinary performance as Kanji Watanabe, a form-stamping Section Chief in City Hall, adding to towers of paperwork, creating endless paper trails and bureaucratic red tape. Everything changes when he is diagnosed with terminal cancer and Watanabe embarks on an emotional and existential journey to understand what it means to live.


Directed by Akira Kurosawa.
