Kurosawa's remarkable film - his only produced and financed and survival, based on the memoirs of Russian explorer Vladimir Arseniev. In the harsh environs of the Siberian frontier, an expedition led by Arseniev encounters the momadic Goldi tribesman Dersu Uzala, who agrees to guide the men through the vast uncharted wilderness. Although initially considered but the group as little more that a savage, Dersu's skill, courage and spiritual wisdom soon earn their respect and admiration, as well as instilling in them a new-found compassion for the natural world.

Only half the film, do not rent - Dersu Uzala review by MR

Spoiler Alert

Disappointed to discover that what should be a 2 hour 20 minute film is actually only disc 1 containing the first half of the movie and Cinema Paradiso appear not to have the disc 2! 

They don’t even list it as a 2 disc film which is easily discoverable if you look into the Artifical Eye release DVD specs. 

Hopefully Cinema Paradiso will remove this title till they are actually able to offer the viewer the complete movie and not just the first half.  

From a technical perspective the DVD image quality / transfer is also pretty poor.

2nd part is available - Dersu Uzala review by JM

Spoiler Alert

Cinema Paradiso do have the second part, you just have to ask for it to be sent via the helpdesk / contact us pages. As I write this, the second part still does not appear automatically in searches.

One of Kurosawa’s best films - Dersu Uzala review by AB

Spoiler Alert

I am a huge Kurosawa fan, and this film is one of my favourites, a spellbinding character study of two men. Choose Russian language rather than the inferior default English dubbing. As noted, ask for the second disc through help pages as the film is split across discs.
