Truth lies with perspective.

''It's human to lie. Most of the time we can't even be honest with ourselves.''

A heinous crime and its aftermath are recalled from differing points of view.

Toshirô Mifune: Tajômaru

Ironically, Japanese critics were not enthusiastic about Rashomon when it was released in 50's Japan.
In today's world, however, Rashomon is generally considere... read more

Good, but vastly overrated.

"No one tells a lie after he's said he's going to tell one."

Akira Kurosawa's Rashomon is a film that I both liked and disliked.

On the one hand it was a visual arresting, superb study of human nature. But on the other hand the film is highly boring not to mention monotonous.

Rashomon opens as a group of men start discussing a heinous crime that unfol... read more

A great movie

It is one of those movies I should definitely re-watch. Indeed, I saw it only once and it must have been something like 15 years ago. Still, I remember it as if it was yesterday. I was pretty young back in those days and after hearing so many good things about it, I thought I should give it a try. Of course, at first, I was a little bit worried, you know, a 60 years old movie, in black and white, ... read more

The murder of a man and the rape of his wife in a forest grove—seen from four different perspectives. Akira Kurosawa’s meditation on the nature of “truth” transformed narrative cinema as we know it.

"4.1. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Jäljittelijöistään poiketen ja niistä huolimatta, Rashomon tuntuu vieläkin tuoreelta (50-luvun japanilainen filmi toki näyttää ikänsä oli restauraatio, kuinka laadukas hyvänsä) tai vähintään ajattomalta. Rakenteen erinomaisuus on erinomaista ja ainakin mun näkökulmasta sen hödyntämisessä pitkälti ylittämätöntäkin, mutta tunnelma ja tunteet tekevät vasta kokonaisuuden. Sen ihmiskuvan lohduttomuus ei sinänsä ole mieltä ylentävää, mutt"

"13.4. Toinen katselukerta, edellisestä n. 11 vuotta. Vähän vahingossa Kurosawalta nyt tulikin uudelleenkatselu merkittävien näkemättömien sijaan, mutta ilolla Rashomonin taas katselikin. Minimalistisuudessa niin tyylipuhdas elokuva kaikin puolin. Väkevä sanoma ja ihastuttava filmi."

"“The fractured narrative – where you’re seeing a story line from different points of view, perhaps an unreliable narrator, jumping back in time – could have been applied to any topic, something silly, to a question of justice and truth…. What is truth? What’s true for you may not be true for me. Rashomon takes that experience addresses it cinematically in a way that hadn’t been done…. The technique is in every film and TV show now. It’s just part of the way we consume story."
