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.
