In this classic tale of lust for power and revenge (and his last epic), film master Akira Kurosawa tells the tale of The Great Lord Hidetora Ichimonji, as he chooses to step down to hand over power to his three sons and be a guest in their castles for his remaining years. Upon being warned by his youngest son that it is unlikely the three sons will remain united, he banishes him, only to discover that just such a conspiracy has been hatched by his two others sons, threatening to take his title and power. Hailed for its use of color and powerful images, it won an Academy Award for Costume Design. (35mm presentation, Japanese language with English subtitles)
