Last Chance to win the newly restored Ran on Blu-Ray!

It’s your last chance to win this newly restored legendary movie!

We here at Rumsey’s are excited to announce that the legendary movie Ran has recieved a rather sparkling 4K restoration (as seen in cinemas this month) and will be arriving on Blu-Ray and DVD on the 2nd May!

Here’s the official text to whet your appetite:

‘StudioCanal / Independent Cinema Office (ICO) are proud to announce a nationwide reissue of Akira Kurosawa’s Ran, recently beautifully restored in 4K and 30 years on from its original release in the UK.

The final masterpiece from legendary Japanese filmmaker Akira KurosawaRan, which translates as ‘turmoil’, is Kurosawa’s meditation on Shakespeare’s King Lear crossed with the history of Japan’s 16th century Civil Wars and the legend of Morikawa, a feudal warlord with three sons.

To commemorate 400 years since William Shakespeare’s death and thirty years on from its original UK theatrical release in 1986, Ran has been meticulously restored in digital 4K by French laboratory Éclair under STUDIOCANAL and Kadokawa Pictures’ supervision. Based on an original negative, the majority of the restoration work has been done manually, image by image. An action-packed historical epic of stylistic grandeur, the new restoration amplifies the film’s visual splendour, seen first in all its glory in 2015 where it screened at Cannes, New York and Toronto Film Festivals.

How to win:

We here at Rumsey’s have decided to team up with StudioCanal to promote the release and they have been good enough to grant us a Blu-Ray copy to give away to one lucky Rumsey reader! To enter all you have to do is answer the simple question below by 2nd May.

Which of Shakespeare’s plays is called back to in Kurosawa’s Ran? Is it:
