A bandit rapes a woman and kills her husband, a Samurai, in a village forest. We hear four accounts of the crime -- from the wife, the murderer, a monk, and a woodcutter -- but their stories vary widely. Among the most influential films of all time. Won a special Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film; received an additional nomination for Best Set Decoration. Won the Leone d'Oro at the Venice Film Festival.
