Bil’s rating (out of 5):  BBBBB.  Japan, 1950.  Screenplay by Akira Kurosawa, , based on the stories Rashomon and In A Grove by .  Cinematography by .  Produced by .  Music by .  Production Design by .  Film Editing by Akira Kurosawa.  Podcast:  My Criterions.  Academy Awards 1951.  Academy Awards 1952.  

Exceptional Japanese drama by Akira Kurosawa, the film that established his name as a powerful voice in international cinema. The rape of a noblewoman () and the murder of her husband is recounted by different ‘witnesses’, all of whom have completely different takes on the situation. The outcome is for you to discover in this powerful film, beautifully filmed and languidly directed.
