The movie is a tale of ambition, family, love and war set in the midst of the Japanese Civil Wars of the sixteenth century. This is a jaunting tale of love and loss, with the blending of the otherworldly and the real, and is one of the most beautiful films ever made. The director Kenji Mizoguchi won the Silver Lion award at the 1953 Venice film Festival.
