Rashomon

Rashomon on IMDb

Set in feudal Japan, this film presents an intriguing tale of violent crime in the woods, told from the perspective of four different characters -- a bandit, a woman, her husband and a woodcutter. Only two things about the incident seem to be clear -- the woman was raped and her husband is now dead. However, the other elements radically differ as the four participants and witnesses relate their own stories.

What we think

At his peak, Kurosawa was able to take all the many moving parts of film –and distil them all into something elemental, taking the complex and making it exceedingly simple.

What others think

Kurosawa's 1950 masterwork is a chilling, utterly memorable dissection of the nature of human communication.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
Kurosawa is always worth a look but this is a particular classic that has influenced so much to come, it's almost essential.
