In a medieval Japanese forest, there is a rape and a murder. Four witnesses tell four divergent tales. What really happened? Rashômon stormed world cinema as the first widely seen Japanese film, winning the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar and becoming endlessly influential. "The genius of Rashômon is that all of the flashbacks are both true and false."—Roger Ebert.
