Shingen, a powerful warlord, has become as legendary as the motto emblazoned on his war banners: "Swift as the wind, silent as the forest, fierce as the fire, immovable as the mountain". As he lies dying from his battle wounds, Shingen orders his clan to find a double to replace him - to keep his death secret so that his enemies will not attack. The man chosen for this role is called kagemusha (the shadow warrior). However this kagemusha turns out to be a petty criminal who must somehow transform himself into a great leader and command the allegiance of 25,000 samurai warriors. An epic drama of feudal conflict in 16th century Japan, "Kagemusha" was nominated for two 1980 Academy Awards (Art Direction - Set Decoration, Foreign Language Film) and was co-winner of the grand prize at the 1980 Cannes Film Festival. It is a milestone in the career of Akira Kurosawa.天正元年,武田軍攻打德川軍的野田城,武田軍的首領武田信玄受狙擊而亡。為了不動搖軍心,由貌似信玄的影武者所扮,最後信玄死去的消息被曝光,影武者也因此被放逐。黑澤明在本片拍攝前繪製兩百多幅彩圖,不停展現其對本片確切的構思,而且也引導著本片場景的拍攝,使每一個畫面,如同一幅色彩鮮明的繪圖。從大隊人馬疾馳場面、壯觀的旗幟飄揚,特別是影武者夢見惡夢光景,以及武田軍戰敗境況,都可看出黑澤明獨特大膽的繪畫式表現手法。
