Overview
The murder of a man and the rape of his wife in a forest grove - seen from four different perspectives. Toshiro Mifune explodes as the feral bandit who may or may not be guilty of these crimes in Akira Kurosawa's meditation on the nature of "truth", Rashomon, a humane allegory that transformed narrative cinema as we know it and turned its director into an international sensation.
