Rashōmon by Akira Kurosawa( Visual )

155 editions published between 1950 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 3,560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in ninth century Kyoto. A nobleman is murdered, his bride is raped by a bandit. These deeds are the subject of four different accounts, three by participants and one by an eye-witness. Kurosawa uses a flashback technique to tell the four different versions of these events, and cynically shows the ability of human beings to twist the truth to preserve the idea they have of themselves. The version of the witness, the woodcutter, is different to those of the three participants, and he emerges as the hero of the story
Ugetsu by Kenji Mizoguchi( Visual )

18 editions published between 1953 and 2017 in Japanese and English and held by 847 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quite simply one of the greatest of filmmakers, said Jean-Luc Godard of Kenji Mizoguchi. And Ugetsu, a ghost story like no other, is surely the Japanese director's supreme achievement. Derived from stories by Akinari Ueda and Guy de Maupassant, this haunting tale of love and loss, with its exquisite blending of the otherworldly and the real, is one of the most beautiful films ever made
Ukigusa monogatari = A story of floating weeds( Visual )

9 editions published in 2004 in Japanese and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1959, Yasujiro Ozu remade his 1934 silent film: A Story of Floating Weeds in color and sound with the cinematographer Kazuo Miyagawa (Rashomon, Ugetsu). Setting his later version in a seaside location, Ozu otherwise preserves the details of his elegantly simple plot wherein an aging actor returns to a small town with his troupe and reunities with his former lover and illegitimate son, a scenario that enrages his current mistress and results in heartbreak for all. A Story of Floating Weeds reveals Ozu in the midst of developing his mode of expression; Floating weeds reveals his distinct style at its pinnacle. In each, the director captures the joy and sadness in everyday life

A riveting psychological thriller that investigates the nature of truth and the meaning of justice, Rashomon is widely considered one of the greatest films ever made. Four people give different accounts of a man's murder and the rape of his wife, which director Akira Kurosawa presents with striking imagery and an ingenious use of flashbacks.
