Whether you are familiar with Kurosawa or not, you will enjoy this touching film. Made with love, and attention to detail, the film takes you through the life of a just retired teacher. What should be his restful years, he is forced through hardships that will test his sanity and relationship with those who love him. Plus, it has one of the most memorable and touching endings of all time!
