Kagemusha (1980) - (dir: Kurosawa) Italian locandina
This is a 13" x 26" Italian locandina poster for the 1980 Akira Kurosawa film Kagemusha AKA The Shadow Warrior written by Masato Ide and Akira Kurosawa and starring Tatsuya Nakadai as the kagemusha. Plot summary: In 16th Century Japan a powerful warlord dies and a poor look-alike thief who had been recruited to impersonate him as a political decoy (a kagemusha) is left to carry on in his place so the death of the warlord will not be known. The thief is not up to the task and clashes with the spirit of the dead warlord.
