A landmark movie by Kurosawa in which four eye witnesses provide wildly varying accounts of the same incident which culminated in the death of a samurai. The film is notable for being the first to have such a plot. The movie ends without truth having been established.
The movie evokes questions about the nature of truth, memory and self image when recalling events. A good movie!
