A transposition of Shakespeare's 'Macbeth' to medieval Japan. After a great military victory, Lords Washizu and Miki are lost in the dense Cobweb Forest, where they meet a mysterious old woman who predicts great things for Washizu and even greater things for Miki's descendants. Once out of the forest, Washizu and Miki are immediately promoted by the Emperor. Washizu, encouraged by his ambitious wife, plots to make even more of the prophecy come true, even if it means killing the Emperor.

Moviewatcher122's 2015 Film Diary: December (57 movies items)

"December 9 "Admirable, my Lord. You, who would soon rule the world, allow a ghost to frighten you." I enjoyed this more than Yojimbo. I thought this one had a more engaging story and I thought it was easier to get invested in because of it. Also this happens to be an adaptation of a Shakespeare play and while I never read any of them, I still think the way Akira Kurosawa told the story was great. I also loved the ending which I didn't see coming at all. This is a great movie and it's very ea"

"23rd of September, DVD Ei parasta Kurosawaa, mutta silti erittäin toimiva pätkä. Kurosawa kuvaa teoksellaan, kuinka kunniallinen samuraisoturi muuttuu ajan myötä entistä itsekkäämmäksi ja ahneemmaksi, kun tietoisuus tulevasta painaa mieltä. Toshiro Mifunen roolihahmo ei kaihda rikollisiakaan keinoja päästäkseen vallassa yhä korkeammalle tasolle. Jos jostain pitää moittia, niin siitä, että yliluonnolliset teemat eivät sovi japanilaiseen versioon Shakespearen Macbethistä. Tunn"
