Synopsis:

Brimming with action while incisively examining the nature of truth, "Rashomon" is perhaps the finest film ever to investigate the philosophy of justice. Through an ingenious use of camera and flashbacks, Kurosawa reveals the complexities of human nature as four people recount different versions of the story of a man's murder and the rape of his wife.

"Innovative, experimental and brilliantly constructed…one of world cinema's truly great works,”
-- Emanuel Levy, emanuellevy.com

“beautifully shot .. the acting is superb”
- Colleen Wanglund, VCinema

“a game-shifter that challenges all we think we know about truth”
-- Dan Jardine, Apollo Guide
