Check it Out: Rashomon

Set in 12th century Japan, award-winning Rashomon tells the story of a rape and murder through the accounts of four characters, all with varying accounts. The bandit (Toshiro Mifune), the rape victim (Machiko Kyo), the murdered man (Masayuki Mori) – through a medium – and nameless woodcutter (Takashi Shimura), all tell their versions of the crime, making it difficult to judge what actually took place.
