Unfolding in a series of eight mythic vignettes, this late work by Akira Kurosawa was inspired by the beloved director’s own nighttime visions, along with stories from Japanese folklore. In a visually sumptuous journey through the master’s imagination, tales of childlike wonder give way to apocalyptic apparitions: a young boy stumbles on a fox wedding in a forest; a soldier confronts the ghosts of the war dead; a power plant meltdown smothers a seaside landscape in radioactive fumes. Interspersed with reflections on the redemptive power of creation, including a richly textured tribute to Vincent van Gogh (who is played by Martin Scorsese), Akira Kurosawa’s Dreams is both a showcase for its maker’s artistry at its most unbridled and a deeply personal lament for a world at the mercy of human ignorance.

This Akira Kurosawa film tells the tale of young Dr. Yasumoto, a recent medical graduate assigned to a rural clinic for his post-graduate medical training. Yasumoto is condescending and arrogant–he is livid that he, who aspires to join the team of physicians caring for the Japanese Shogunate, should have to train in Dr. Niide's spartan clinic serving the impoverished local population. He finds Dr. Niide, known as 'Red Beard', a demanding taskmaster with a brusque manner and intense devotion to his patients. Niide requires nothing less than a monastic lifestyle of his interns. However, gradually Yasumoto is changed by his exposure to Red Beard. He learns the true meaning of being a doctor, seeing patients as real people who are suffering and as individuals whose lives he can improve and heal with his care.

Michael Bryce ist ein "exklusiver 1A" Bodyguard und gehört unangefochten zu den Weltbesten seines Handwerks. Sein großer Erfolg als Personenschützer basiert auf umfassender Vorbereitung, dem Bedenken aller Eventualitäten und langsamem, bedachtem Vorgehen – nebst seinen enormen Fähigkeiten im Nahkampf und der Schusswaffennutzung, die er als Agent der CIA erlernt hat. Als er den japanischen Waffenhändler Kurosawa durch London zu seinem Privatjet geleiten soll, geht zunächst alles gut – bis Kurosawa (bereits im Flugzeug sitzend) aus großer Entfernung durch einen Kopfschuss getötet wird. Bryce verliert sein Ansehen und sein Renommee.
