description

For his 27th film, the 'sensei' of Japanese cinema, Akira Kurosawa, transposes Shakespeare's King Lear to feudal Japan. Ran, which translates as 'chaos' or 'turmoil,' is the tragic tale of Lord Hidetora, a warlord who decides to divide his empire among his three sons on the eve of his 70th birthday. However, Hidetora's youngest and most compassionate son, Saburo, defiantly objects to this hasty decision and is disowned by the proud, stubborn ruler. Once the two eldest sons take control of the empire, they quickly turn on their father and begin vying for total control over the land. As Hidetora is banished from his own kingdom in a bloody battle, he must confront the consequences of his violent, ruthless past. Ten years in the making, Ran represents the culmination of Kurosawa's career by revisiting his skill at adapting Shakespeare, as evidenced in Throne of Blood, and displaying the cinematic splendor of his other landmark films such as Seven Samurai and Rashomon. With its magnificent costumes, breathtaking settings, and amazingly photographed battle sequences, the film is truly stunning.
