  •  The funeral (0+ / 0-)

    was at the end of the movie in the original screenplay.  Then one of Kurosawa's colleagues on the picture suggested moving it to the middle and doing the second half all as flashbacks.

    The discussion at the funeral is about everybody discovering (slowly) that it was Watanabe who got the park built, by using his knowledge of the bureaucracy to manipulate the various apparatchiks.  Each of them thought it was his own idea.
