Akira Kurosawa took the story of King Lear and remade it into this highly regarded, blood splattered 'Period of the Warring States' epic. After years of ruthless slaughter Hidetero splits his kingdom amongst his sons seeking a peaceful retirement, but his life descends into chaos as he is unable to escape the corruption within his own family and the torment within his soul. The 'A.K The Making of Ran' reveals the arduous filming schedule, examines the director's techniques and places the film in a context with his previous work.
