(Japan 1985)

colour, 163', 35mm, Italian dubbed version

A masterpiece of late Kurosawa, the film is based on Shakespeare's King Lear and tells the story of Hidetora, a Japanese war lord in disgrace after having divided his kingdom among his three ungrateful sons. Ran ("chaos" in Japanese) is an unforgettable visual feast, featuring some of the most beautiful battle scenes ever staged. An Academy Award winner, at the time the film was the greatest production effort in Japanese Cinema history.
