The brutal splendor of Siberia acts as a backdrop for Akira Kurosawa's epic tale of struggle and loyalty. Sent on a mission to survey uncharted territory, a Russian captain and his crew team up with an eccentric frontiersman named Dersu Uzala. At first viewed as a childlike primitive, Dersu quickly proves himself an indispensible leader. Glowing cinematography and a haunting score contribute to the power of this simple yet moving story, a Japanese/Soviet co-production.

  • The Criterion Collection laserdisc release of Dersu Uzala features the original Russian soundtrack and the English dubbed soundtrack.

  • Dersu Uzala was transferred from a 35mm anamorphic color reversal internegative in the Cinemascope aspect ratio of 2.35.1.
