A heinous crime and its aftermath are recalled from differing points of view. "Akira Kurosawa's 1951 film won the Grand Prize at the Venice film festival, introducing Kurosawa (and through him the Japanese film) to most of the Western world... An impressive piece of work, visually and rhythmically masterful." Jonathan Rosenbaum
