This landmark film that brought Japanese cinema to the attention of the world, now digitally re-released, is a brilliant exploration of the subjective nature of truth and human weakness. It opens with a priest, a woodcutter and a peasant taking refuge from a downpour beneath a ruined gate in 12th-century Japan. The priest and the woodcutter, each looking stricken, discuss the trial of a notorious bandit for rape and murder. As the retelling of the trial unfolds, the participants in the crime - the bandit (Toshiro Mifune), the rape victim (Machiko Kyo), and the murdered man (Masayuki Mori) - tell their plausible, though completely incompatible, versions of the story.
