I think besides Kagemusha, this is one of Kurosawa's best late period films. The story is inspired by King Lear. There is action in the film, but also tragedy interwoven into the story as well, as the acting is good, the direction is good, and the action scenes are impressive.

Great film. yes loosely based on KING LEAR with some twists. Epic battle spectacular and great costumes. My dvd is a pretty rough transfer but it's been released again in what I understand is a better version.
