Ikiru = To live by Akira Kurosawa( Visual )

16 editions published between 1952 and 2015 in Japanese and held by 1,081 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considered by some to be Akira Kurosawa's greatest achievement, Ikiru presents the director at his most compassionate--affirming life through an exploration of a man's death.

Told in two parts, Ikiru offers Watanabe's quest in the present, and then through a series of flashbacks. The result is a multifaceted look at a life through a prism of perspectives, resulting in a full portrait of a man who lacked understanding from others in life
