World DVD: KAGEMUSHA - 01109DVD

KAGEMUSHA - 01109DVD

Shingen, a powerful warlord, has become as legendary as the motto emblazoned on his war banners: “Swift as the wind, Silent as the forest, Fierce as the fire, immovable as the mountain.” As he lies dying from his battle wounds, Shingen orders his clan to find a double to replace him – to keep his death secret so that his enemies will not attack. The man chosen for this role is called Kagemusha (the shadow warrior). However this Kagemusha turns out to be a petty criminal who must somehow transform himself into a great leader and command the allegiance of 25,000 samurai warriors. An epic drama of feudal conflict in 16th Century Japan, “Kagemusha” was nominated for two 1980 Academy awards (Art Direction – Set Decoration, Foreign Language Film) and was co-winner of the grand prize at the 1980 Cannes Film Festival. It is a milestone in the career of Akira Kurosawa.
