Description
Film buffs, particularly fans of Japanese director Kurosawa, will be the main audience for this massive biography of Kurosawa and his most successful leading actor, Toshiro Mifune. Galbraith (an authority on Japanese cinema) thoroughly researched the lives and careers of both men, interviewing many of their colleagues. The development of Kurosawa's highly influential filmmaking style and the story of the relationship between Kurosawa and Mifune are told in exhaustive, chronological detail, as Galbraith recounts the stories behind the many films they made and the international reputations they came to enjoy. The volume includes a detailed filmography. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
