About this item
In his latest color masterpiece Kagemusha ("The Shadow Warrior"), director Akira Kurosawa returned to the samurai film and to a primary theme of his celebrated career - the play between illusion and reality. Sumptuously reconstructing the splendor of feudal Japan and the pageantry of war, Kurosawa creates a soaring historical epic that is also a somber meditation on the nature of power. The Criterion Collection is proud to present Kagemusha for the first time in its full-length version.
