Kumonosujō = Throne of blood (Spider's web castle) by Akira Kurosawa( Visual )

2 editions published in 2014 in Japanese and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A vivid, visceral Macbeth adaptation, Throne of blood, directed by Akira Kurosawa, sets Shakespeare's definitive tale of ambition and duplicity in a ghostly, fog-enshrouded landscape in feudal Japan. As a hardened warrior who rises savagely to power, Toshiro Mifune gives a remarkable, animalistic performance, as does Isuzu Yamada as his ruthless wife. Throne of blood fuses classical Western tragedy with formal elements taken from Noh theater to create an unforgettable cinematic experience
Ran by Akira Kurosawa( Visual )

4 editions published between 1986 and 2004 in Japanese and Italian and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kurosawa creates his "King Lear" that mixes Japanese history, Shakespeare's plot, and Kurosawa's personal feelings about loyalty. Set in 16th century Japan, an aging ruler, Lord Hidetora, attempts to peacefully divide his kingdom among his three sons. Instead, they turn against each other and betray their father. Ruthless ambition, plots woven by scheming advisors and Hidetora's own past savagery combine in a whirlwind of chaos, ultimately driving the old man insane, shattering his kingdom, and destroying his family
Dodesuka-den by Akira Kurosawa( Visual )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in Japanese and Italian and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film, the title of which seeks to reproduce the sound of a trolley in motion, is Kurosawa's first motion picture in color. Weaving together the lives of a group of Tokyo slum dwellers with a mixture of reality and fantasy, Kurosawa gives an impassioned affirmation to life and to man's overcoming his adversities through hope and dreams.

3 editions published in 1991 in Multiple languages and Italian and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trama: Nonna Kané, un'anziana donna sopravvissuta alla bomba atomica di Nagasaki, a causa dell'esplosione della quale ha perso il marito, riceve all'inizio dell'estate la lettera di un fratello, Suzujiro, che non vede dal 1920 e risiede alla Hawai, nelle quali è diventato cittadino americano. Suzujiro è molto malato e vorrebbe rivedere la sorella prima di morire. La donna, indifferente al viaggio, subisce l'esaltazione dei quattro giovani nipoti, e promette di partire dopo il 9 agosto, data dell'esplosione della bomba e della morte del marito, maestro perito insieme alla sua scolaresca. Sulle insistenze dei ragazzi, la donna rievoca quello che è accaduto in quel tragico giorno del 1945 e apre il cassetto dei ricordi sulla sua numerosa famiglia per cercare di rammentare elementi anche su Suzujiro. Mentre ritornano dal viaggio alle Hawai i genitori dei quattro ragazzi, fieri di essere in ottimi rapporti con il ramo americano della ricchissima famiglia e soprattutto con il figlio di Suzujiro, Clark, uno dei nipoti di Kané, Tateo, scrive a Clark dicendo che la nonna vuole commemorare la data del 9 agosto prima di partire. Preoccupati della possibile reazione contrariata dei cugini americani, i genitori dei ragazzi attendono con timore l'arrivo a Nagasaki di Clark, che credono giunto per troncare personalmente i rapporti con la famiglia giapponese a causa della lettera recapitatagli. Ma Clark, al suo arrivo, si mostra molto addolorato per la notizia della morte del marito di Kané nello scoppio della bomba
