One of the great films of Japanese director Akira Kurosawa "THE THRONE OF BLOOD" is being shown at Somerset House as part of their open air summer screenings.
Throne of Blood, Thursday 15 August
£14.50 + booking fees
Director Akira Kurosawa’s spectacular and haunting version of Macbeth is one of the most powerful Shakespeare films ever made, still unrivalled after more than 50 years. The filmmaker’s force-of-nature leading man Toshiro Mifune plays a samurai warrior whose murderous plots bring darkness down upon both himself and his scheming wife. The climax may provide one of cinema’s defining images but, this being Kurosawa, every frame of the film proves unforgettable. (110 mins)
