- Synopsis / Plot
- Kurosawa's widely acclaimed master-piece was something of a last-minute affair, made after his plans to direct a lavish costume picture fel through and using its sets, costumes and actors. The result is based on a Kabuki piece entitled Kanjincho and tells the story of a nobbleman fleeing from is brother along with six generals and a porter. The fugitive lord and his bodyguards and followers, all disguised as monks, traverse a forest, where they must avoid capture and outsmart the border guards. The porter, a dimwit whose foolishness very nearly leads to disaster, is played by Enomoto, Kurosawa's longtime collaborator.
