Dersu Uzala

Much of the attraction of this book lies in descriptions of how Dersu reads the clues of the trail, the animals, and the weather, not merely with experience, but often with the logical inference uala might expect from Sherlock Holmes.

It’s a must watch for everyone who loves and understands cinema. The old man guides them and they survive.


No need for me to crib those thoughts here, when Chad has already written them so finely.

Set in the forests of Siberia in the 19th century, Dersu Uzala is one of the most important films about friendship ever made.

The Russians scoff at his ways and his ‘primitive’ belief system, but eventually come to rely on him, and even love him.

Friendship, the slow terrible impact of one culture upon another, the slow terrible impact of human culture upon nature This book reads like a wilderness adventure novel that Jack London only wishes he could write. It is a beautiful story that takes place in an world that very few of us in the West have had a chance to see. A hunter comes upon the soldiers speaking kind of broken Russian.
