Synopsis

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.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
