SKU ID #324104
Feudal Japan is the backdrop to Akira Kurosawa's humane 1950 allegory about a violent rape of a woman and her husband's death in the forest as told from the perspective of four characters. Toshirãâ´ Mifune as a bandit, Masayuki Mori and Machiko Kyãâ as the husband and wife, and Takashi Shimura as a woodcutter, star in this intriguing crime drama. Nothing is black and white as the people's accounts of the crime vary greatly. This classic, highly acclaimed film transformed narrative cinema and made its director an international sensation.
