The first, Dodesukaden, about a group of poor people living around a rubbish dump, was not a success.

After an attempted suicide, Kurosawa went on to make several more films, although he had great difficulty in obtaining domestic financing despite his international reputation.

Kurosawa was a notoriously lavish gourmet, and spent huge quantities of money on film sets providing an incredibly large quantity of fine delicacies, especially meat, for the cast and crew, although the meat was sometimes left over from recording sound effects of the sound of blades cutting flesh in the many swordfight scenes.[3]

I really loved Dodesukaden. I found it to be very sad. I've heard that it was a comedy, but that wasn't apparent from the subtitles. It was a very unusual movie.

Over the years I found my self searching for a copy of Kurosawa's "Dreams." I finally found it on DVD and now I can watch any segment any time I wish. I found this to be an incredibly moving experience the first time I saw it, and am pleased it has held its magic for me over the years.
