“If you have never seen it, you should. If you have seen it before, your admiration will only increase.” —Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
“It illuminates a reeling society while telling a story of deep human emotion.” —Mark Chalon Smith, Los Angeles Times
One of the greatest achievements by Akira Kurosawa, Ikiru shows the director at his most compassionate—affirming life through an exploration of death. Takashi Shimura 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.
Now playing at Gables Cinema, Living is a reimagining of Akira Kurosawa’s Ikiru, and is directed by Oliver Hermanus (Moffie, The Endless River) from a script by Kazuo Ishiguro (author of the novels The Remains of The Day and Never Let Me Go).
Please note: seating is general admission.
