Synopsis
This entertaining feudal drama is an early effort from master director Akira Kurosawa. It draws its inspiration from a traditional Japanese story of honor and obligation--an ancient tale that was first presented on the stages of Noh and Kabuki theatres, centuries ago.When a young Japanese lord is nearly murdered by his envious brother, he flees the court disguised as a lowly attendant. A handful of faithful servants protect and sustain the banished nobleman, but his situation is complicated by the strictness of the feudal canon and the troublemaking presence of a crude, comic sidekick.
