AKIRA KUROSAWA directs

TOSHIRO MIFUNE:

The Two Main Men of Japan

RASHOMON

Directed by AKIRA KUROSAWA/Japan/1950/1hr, 28mins.

RASHOMON Danish program, 1950 from the MBC Archive

A riveting psychological thriller that investigates the nature of truth and the meaning of justice, Rashomon is widely considered one of the greatest films ever made. Four people give different accounts of a man’s murder and the rape of his wife, which director Akira Kurosawa presents with striking imagery and an ingenious use of flashbacks. This eloquent masterwork and international sensation revolutionized film language and introduced Japanese cinema—and a commanding new star by the name of Toshiro Mifune—to the Western world.-Criterion (In Japanese with English subtitles)

“When Akira Kurosawa made Rashomon (1950), he was a forty-year-old director working near the beginning of a career that would last fifty years, produce some of the greatest films ever made, and exert a tremendous and lasting influence on filmmaking throughout the world.”-Stephen Prince
