Rashomon 35mm

Rashomon 35mm

Thriller During a rainstorm, a woodcutter and a priest seek shelter from the deluge beneath the Rashomon gate. To pass the time, they discuss recent shocking events: the murder of Takehiro, reportedly at the hands of bandit Tajomaru, and the rape of Masako. The woodcutter claims to be a witness to the crimes and he recounts everything he saw, just one of the four contrasting perspectives that subtly change our understanding of the characters' innocence.
