Synopsis

Shakespeare's King Lear is the basis for this spectacular epic set in medieval Japan. The ageing Hidetora splits his land up between his three sons, hoping that they will preserve his legacy and let him live out his years in comfort and with respect, but his well-intentioned gesture only leads to brutal war and the betrayal of the old man. The film combines this tragic personal story with some of the greatest battle scenes ever shot, all made without a single computer trick.

PLEASE BE AWARE: After ordering Ran the disc you will receive will be marked as being a 15 certificate - however, this relates to the extra features on the DVD and not the film itself, which is certified with the BBFC as a 12. 

Into Film has consulted the BBFC, and their guidance is that as long as a club leader screens only the film (and not additional features or audio commentaries etc), Ran can be treated as a 12 certificate in a school setting. 

To order this film you need to be logged in as a club leader.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
