A film by Akira Kurosawa
Starring Toshiro Mifune

“Unites its audience in awe and wonder … In this new print, Rashomon is better than anyone remembers it.” —Michael Sragow, The Baltimore Sun


Brimming with action while incisively examining the nature of truth, Rashomon is perhaps the finest film ever made about 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 same story: the murder of a man and the rape of his wife. Starring Toshiro Mifune in another commanding performance, Rashomon revolutionized film language and introduced Japanese cinema to the world. Janus Films is proud to present this landmark work in a new, definitive 35mm restoration.
