A murder takes place in a forest. A samurai is killed. A court convenes and three testimonies are heard: a bandit, the samurai’s wife and the samurai himself, from beyond the grave - but each testimony differs in significant ways.
Winner of the Golden Lion at the 1951 Venice Film Festival and an Honorary Oscar for the most outstanding foreign film, Rashomon is one of Kurosawa’s finest films, and a masterpiece of Japanese cinema.
