One of the greatest films of all time. In 12th-century Japan, a wealthy merchant and his wife are ambushed by a famous bandit. The bandit rapes the wife and kills the husband. Or does he? It depends on whom you believe.

Akira Kurosawa's classic film recounts the crime from four separate points-of-view -- that of the bandit, the wife, the dead man, and a lowly peasant -- with each character offering a vastly differing version of the same story.
