The book was [[TheFilmOfTheBook made into a movie]] on two occasions, the second and more famous adaptation being that of Creator/AkiraKurosawa in 1975. The film, a Russian production in the Russian language, is the only film of Kurosawa's career in a language other than Japanese. It's also one of two Kurosawa films to win the UsefulNotes/AcademyAwardForBestForeignLanguageFilm--the other being ''Film/{{Rashomon}}''--and one of four Russian films to win the award, the others being the 1968 adaptation of ''Literature/WarAndPeace'', ''Film/MoscowDoesNotBelieveInTears'' (1980), and ''Film/BurntByTheSun'' (1994).

* TroubledProduction: As no Japanese studio wanted to fund Kurosawa, he had to work with a Soviet one, Mosfilm. And during the extended 3-year production, basically everything conspired against him.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The Soviet producers initially wanted to cast Kurosawa's frequent collaborator, ToshiroMifune, in the role of Dersu, but he refused due to scheduling conflicts and an acrimonious falling-out they had with Kurosawa in 1965. In the end a Soviet actor Maxim Munzuk got the title role.

* [[MagicalNativeAmerican Magical Manchukuo Asian]]: Though actually of Nanai ascent, Dersu sometimes fits the role accordingly, seeing the interconnectedness of all things, living in complete harmony with the environment, performing some shamanic medicine and addressing to all living things as "men". By extension, he might fall in the CryingIndian trope as well. Usually for [[HumansAreBastards good reasons]].

* NativeGuide: Native Dersu guides the Soviet soldiers through the harsh remote Siberian taiga.
