Japanese (English subtitles)
At the beginning of Ikiru, a middle-aged Japanese civil servant discovers that he is dying. The rest of the film tells the tale of what he does with the final bit of life left to him, having wasted - as he sees it - the previous decades. The result is neither a depressing wallow in gloom nor an upliftingly perky tale of someone suddenly doing everything they had been too scared to do before. It's something smarter, more complex - and far more rewarding. A beautifully intimate film from one of Japan's most loved directors.
Bizarre but brilliant existential tale of a hypochondriac playwright whose art begins to imitate life on a very grand scale indeed.
