Ran    (BLR)

Legendary Japanese auteur Akira Kurosawa sets Shakespeare's classic tragedy "King Lear" against a samurai backdrop, re-envisioning the timeless story through the eyes of a warlord (Tatsuya Nakadai) who transfers his kingdom to his eldest son. When a power struggle ensues, incited by the warlord's two disinherited younger sons, it results in a masterful tale of family strife that ranks among the maestro's most compelling films.

Akira Kurosawa's brilliantly conceived re-telling of Shakespeare's King Lear magically mixes Japanese history, Shakespeare's plot and Kurosawa's own feelings about loyalty in the epic masterpiece, Ran.Set in 16th century Japan, an aging ruler, Lord Hidetora, announces his intention to divide his land equally among three sons. This decision to step down unleashes a power struggle between the three, when Hidetora falls prey to the false flattery bestowed upon him by the two older sons and banishes the youngest when he speaks the truth. The ruthless betrayal ultimately drives Hidetora insane, destroying his entire family and kingdom.
