‘Rashomon’ Movie Summary

Rashomon begins as heavy rain pours monotonously out of a dark sky. Under Kyoto’s once-glorious front gate, a poor woodcutter and a faithful priest gather around a feeble campfire to share their take on a mysterious murder with a wet commoner. Out in a lush bamboo forest, a valiant samurai died as the hands of the notorious bandit, Tajomaru. He then sexually assaulted the deam man’s wife. Before court and through a series of flashbacks, four strikingly different points-of-view inextricably interweave with half-truths, cover-ups, and the supernatural, to further blur the lines between memory and fact. Who is the evil-doer behind this intricate tale? In the end, only your personal perspective and bias can decide.
