Throne Of Blood

£9.99

Product description

Akira Kurosawa's film version of 'Macbeth' transfers the action to medieval Japan, where a samurai warrior (Toshiro Mifune) is urged to murder his lord (Takashi Shimura) and his best friend (Minoru Chiaki) by a forest spirit and an ambitious wife (Isuzu Yamada). Kurosawa renders 'the Scottish play' through the conventions of traditional Japanese Noh theatre, creating what was reputedly T.S. Eliot's favourite film. Features the famous ending, with Toshiro Mifune caught under hails of arrows.

The disc has some very faint marks that will not affect play and is generally in very good condition.
