Master filmmaker Akira Kurosawa recasts the Prince of Denmark into a Japanese executive in this clever spin on Shakespeare's "Hamlet" that blends elements of the play with a forbidding film noir atmosphere. Toshiro Mifune is the grieving young man who uses his marriage to the daughter of Kyoko Kagawa, his father's killer, as a springboard for revenge, infiltrating his new father-in-law's construction company in order to mess with Kagawa's mind and expose the organization's corruption, and setting the stage for tragedy.
