RASHOMON, jan 10

For those of you who are still reeling from the aftr-effects of a
psycho-froggy-delic trip(read Om Darbadar), here's an even more
confounding film.


Akira Kurosawa

In 12th century Japan, a samurai and his wife are attacked by the
notorious bandit Tajomaru, and the samurai ends up dead. Tajomaru is
captured shortly afterward and is put on trial, but his story and the
wife's are so completely different that a psychic is brought in to allow
the murdered man to give his own testimony. He tells yet another
completely different story. Finally, a woodcutter who found the body
reveals that he saw the whole thing, and his version is again completely
different from the others.

Who is telling the truth? What is the truth?
