Les bas-fonds = The lower depths by Jean Renoir( Visual )

2 editions published between 1936 and 2004 in French and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Synopsis: Jean Renoir and Akira Kurosawa, two of cinema's greatest directors, transform Maxim Gorky's classic proletariat play The Lower Depths in their own ways for their own times. Renoir, working amidst the rise of Hitler and the Popular front in France, had need to take license with the dark nature of Gorky's source material, softening its bleak outlook. Kurosawa, firmly situated in the postwar world, found little reason for hope. He remained faithful to the original with its focus on the conflict between illusion and reality-a theme he would return to over and over again. Working with their most celebrated actors (Gabin with Renoir; Mifune with Kurosawa), each film offers a unique look at cinematic adaptation-where social conditions and filmmaking styles converge to create unique masterpieces."--Website

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

2 editions published in 2014 in Japanese and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Synopsis: One of the most celebrated screen adaptations of Shakespeare into film, Akira Kurosawa's Throne of Blood re-imagines Macbeth in feudal Japan. Starring Kurosawa's longtime collaborator Toshiro Mifune and the legendary Isuzu Yamada as his ruthless wife, the film tells of a valiant warrior's savage rise to power and his ignominious fall. With Throne of Blood, Kurosawa fuses one of Shakespeare's greatest tragedies with the formal elements of Japanese Noh theater to make a Macbeth that is all his own-a classic tale of ambition and duplicity set against a ghostly landscape of fog and inescapable doom."--Website
Ran by Akira Kurosawa( Visual )

3 editions published between 1986 and 2004 in Japanese and Italian and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
