Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The castle destroyed in the middle of the movie was specially constructed on the slopes of Mount Fuji for the film and then burned down. No miniatures were used for that segment, although an optical of another castle being burned at the end was used.
  • Unlike most other characters in the film, the character of the fool, Kyoami (Pîtâ), has no basis in historic Japan. The most similar position in relation to a historic Japanese warlord would be a page, but would be quite different in responsibilities. Rather Kyoami is based on the Fool or Jester of European medieval times and, of course, William Shakespeare's character of the fool from "King Lear".
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): SPOILER: Right before the older brother is shot in the battle at the 3rd castle, you can see the blood box on his back.
  • Akira Kurosawa referred to his previous film, Kagemusha, as a "dress rehearsal" for this film. He spent ten years storyboarding every shot in the film as paintings. The resulting collection of images was published with the screenplay.
