By turns tragic and transcendent, Akira Kurosawa’s film follows the daily lives of a group of people barely scraping by in a slum on the outskirts of Tokyo. Yet as desperate as their circumstances are, each of them—the homeless father and son envisioning their dream house; the young woman abused by her uncle; the boy who imagines himself a trolley conductor—finds reasons to carry on. The unforgettable Dodes’ka-den was made at a tumultuous moment in Kurosawa’s life. And all of his hopes, fears, and artistic passion are on fervent display in this, his gloriously shot first color film.Dodes'ka-den featuring Yoshitaka Zushi and Kin Sugai is streaming with subscription on The Criterion Channel. It's a drama movie with a better than average Rotten Tomatoes (critics) score of 67% and a better than average IMDb audience rating of 7.4 (5,605 votes).
