From Everybody:

highly recomended

Kurasawa's classic is classic. Not much can be said except that you should sit down and watch this film if you haven't seen it before. A simple story told from different points of view brings light by the end that pulls you into wanting to watch the film over and over again. There is some over acting in it, and though this is intentional by the director to utilize caricature it can get a bit annoying. Still the acting is dead on to what it needs to be for the end product and the satisfaction of this experience is a reminder of the medium's ability to be among the highest forms of art. Highly recommended.

The film opens on a woodcutter (???; Kikori) and a priest (???; Tabi H?shi) sitting beneath the city gate to stay dry in a downpour. A commoner joins them and they tell him that they've witnessed a disturbing story, which they then begin recounting to him. The woodcutter claims he found the body of a murdered samurai three days earlier while looking for wood in the forest; upon discovering the body, he says, he fled in a panic to notify the authorities. The priest says that he saw the samurai and the woman traveling the same day the murder happened. Both men were then summoned to testify in court, where they met the captured bandit Taj?maru (???), who claimed responsibility for the rape and murder.
