This is a 13" x 26" Italian locandina poster for a 1970s rerelease of the 1950 Akira Kurosawa film Rashomon based on stories by Ryunosuke Akutagawa, screenplay by Akira Kurosawa and Shinobu Hashimoto and starring Toshiro Mifune as Tajomaru. Plot summary: Rashomon is the name of a 12th Century ruined gatehouse where three people are sheltering from a storm. They talk about the murder of a young samurai, but their accounts of the incident are contradictory. The film makes no attempt to establish a definitive version of the story; its deliberate ambiguity has become known as the "Rashomon effect." According to many critics this is the film that introduced the world to Japanese film.
