Kagemusha

Akira Kurosawa’s twenty-fifth film as director, Kagemusha (literally translated as “shadow warrior” in Japanese), is a period piece that reflects the military and cultural history of feudal Japan. The film tells the story of a thief (Takeda Shingen/Kagemusha, played by Tatsuya Nakadai), who is forced to impersonate a warlord he resembles. Quickly embroiled in warfare and deception after the warlord dies, the thief is eventually revealed as an imposter, forcing him to make a fateful decision about where his loyalty lies. Winner of the 1980 Palme d’Or and nominated for two Academy Awards. (35mm)
