Period and Historical
Japanese (English subtitles)
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.
