Added DiffLines:

* FishOutOfWater: Dersu can't deal with all the restrictions of life in a city--he feels uncomfortable living in a house, he's told he can't fire his gun in city limits, he gets arrested for cutting down a tree. Eventually he goes back into the wild.

* ImpropableAimingSkills: The soldiers amuse themselves by tying a bottle to a string, setting the string swinging on a tree branch, and taking potshots at it. All of them miss. Dersu, who objects to wasting something as useful as a glass bottle in the wild, says he'll shoot the string instead. He hits it, of course.

(This makes it feel all the more tragic towards the end when Dersu's deteriorating eyesight means he can't shoot wild game anymore.)

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).
