Throne of Blood - Kumonosu-jô

Akira KUROSAWA – Japan – 1957

German version

CHF 19.90 / EUR 18.50

One of the most celebrated screen adaptations of Shakespeare into film, Akira Kurosawa's Throne of Blood re-imagines «Macbeth» in feudal Japan. Starring Kurosawa's longtime collaborator Toshiro Mifune and the legendary Isuzu Yamada as his ruthless wife, the film tells of a valiant warrior's savage rise to power and his ignominious fall. With Throne of Blood, Kurosawa fuses one of Shakespeare's greatest tragedies with the formal elements of Japanese Noh theater to make a «Macbeth» that is all his own – a classic tale of ambition and duplicity set against a ghostly landscape of fog and inescapable doom.
