One day in feudal Japan, a woodcutter and a priest slump at Kyoto's Rashomon Gate during a hard rain. When a passerby steps inside to get out of the storm, the shaken and baffled woodcutter and the priest begin to share a tale about a disturbing double crime. What unfurls through flashbacks is four divergent accounts of the incident, several confessions and an ultimate truth that is in there somewhere. This early film by director Akira Kurosawa is considered a masterpiece.
