Story Movie

Ran 4K 1985 JAPANESE Ultra HD 2160p
Japan, 16th century. The aging ruler of Hidetora announces the division of his possessions between his three sons.

Deceived by false assurances of loyalty to the two eldest sons of Hidetora, he drives away the younger, who dared to assert that his father's decision would bring death to their entire family. Having become a victim of an insidious betrayal, the ruler loses his mind, and a merciless fratricidal war begins between his heirs.

Review 4K Movie

The film in color presentation turned out to be too interesting and intricate to be a simple genre sketch. To tell the truth, I did not see in this tape any hints of Shakespeare, or any special historical theme. Of course, there is a formal similarity with historical plots, and with 'King Lear'. But on a whim, I guess - everything is much deeper.

Even in the movie 'Under the sound of tram wheels' it became obvious to me that Akira Kurosawa completely departed from neorealism. He became interested in metaphor, allegory, conceptuality. He stopped 'hiding' behind the plot and without fear began to 'wield' archetypal attitudes. Thus, a simple layman who came with popcorn to see 'another film from the author of' Rasemon 'was thrown into confusion and left the cinema with a single question. The question was simple - 'What is this movie about?'.

The same question should arise after watching the movie 'Ran'. I am sure that even those viewers who 'hid' behind logical juxtapositions of the film with 'King Lear' and historical themes also remained a little disappointed after watching. For not everything is clear here.

But the film, it seems to me, was not intended to be entertaining or understandable. The viewer received almost three hours of visual meditation on the topic of old age and loneliness, reward for deeds and summing up. Gaze into the mad eyes of Tatsuya Nakadai, take a closer look at the colorfully depicted battles, pay attention to the desert landscapes through which the main character has to walk. These visuals are so universal and fundamental that they carry much more information than the plot suggests. And the importance of the plot in this tape is minimized.

Small philosophical phrases turn out to be much more accurate than any plot twists and turns:

"People are born - cry, and die - cry";
'- I'm lost. - The whole world is lost ';
'- This road. I remember her. We were already walking along it. '

I will share my opinion regarding the interpretation of the tape. I believe that the suffering of the protagonist is very similar to the suffering of Uncle Bunmi (this is a depiction of his dying path), and the image of the battle is nothing more than a collective image of summing up the results of human life, the clash of good and bad deeds, which reduces everything to retribution and redemption.

So, I just have to capture one of the best films of 1985, showing us a completely different Akira - a deep philosopher who concentrates on contemplating the deep meaning of Being.
