“In 9th-century Kyoto, a nobleman’s bride is raped by a bandit; the nobleman is murdered, or possibly he is a suicide. This double crime is acted out four times, in the versions of the three participants, each giving an account that increases the prestige of his conduct, and in the version of a woodcutter who witnessed the episode….This great enigmatic film was directed by Akira Kurosawa….it has its own perfection.” (Pauline Kael)
1950 Dir. Akira Kurosawa. 1.33:1 B&W DCP 88 min. In Japanese with English subtitles.
