Ran

  • 1985

  • 162 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Akira Kurosawa
  • Written by: Akira Kurosawa, Hideo Oguni, Masato Ide
  • Cast: Tatsuya Nakadai, Mieko Harada

Kurosawa's 'King Lear' is a bleak and despairing vision of mankind torn apart by disunity, personal vengeances and family feuds that produce no honour, no victors, just victims. An accomplished fusion of Japanese history and blood-drenched Shakespearean drama, this film grows more impressive with repeated viewings.
