Long considered one of director Akira Kurosawa's masterpieces, this epic samurai saga is a loose adaptation of Shakespeare's King Lear as set during 16th-century Japan.

This 15th anniversary re-issue features brand new laser subtitles and a fresh 35mm print. In Japanese with English subtitles. 160 minutes
