"In his 1980 color masterpiece, Kurosawa returns to the samurai film and to a primary theme of his career - the play between illusion and reality. Sumptuously reconstructing the splendor of feudal Japan and the pageantry of war, this legendary director creates a historical epic that is also a meditation on the nature of power."

Japan, 1980, Color, 162 minutes

If you haven't seen this film on the big screen, don't miss it. The images of this film will stay with you for a long time. And Kurosawa is a master storyteller.
