Various details of the gate are seen: its steps, the base of a column, the eaves of the roof, puddles on the ground. Everywhere there is evidence of the downpour. Gagaku, traditional court music, is heard during the credits, then the sound of the torrential rain. The final title reads: Kyoto, in the twelfth century, when famines and civil wars had devastated the ancient capital.
The woodcutter raises his head. I just cant understand it at all. The two men continue to stare vacantly at the rain. Thunder is heard. The man runs past a fallen column, and disappears from the frame. The woodcutters voice is heard. He goes toward the others-the camera panning with him-and sits behind the woodcutter. The commoner looks toward the priest. And only today. Why, if you go up to the top of this gate youll always find five or six bodies. Nobody bothers about them. Wars, earthquakes, great winds, fires, famines, plague-each new year is full of disaster.
Pause Yet It is more horrible than fires or wars or epidemics-or bandits. Look here now, priest-lets not have any sermons. But Id just as soon sit quietly and listen to the rain than hear any sermons from you. The woodcutter rises and runs over to him. I dont understand it.
This rain wont let up for some time. Both men look up. The camera tilts down from the signboard to the men far below. The woodcutter moves closer to the commoner. Id gone into the mountains for wood Music begins, a steady rhythm supporting a melody initially associated with the woodcutter but later becoming the underlying musical theme of the entire film.
The camera travels as the woodcutter approaches, pans, and travels with him again, closer now, occasionally losing sight of him in the underbrush. Suddenly he and camera halt.
Music ends. The woodcutter, in the background, looks at it and comes forward to touch the veil. Audible is a soft tinkle like the sound of wind chimes; it develops into bell-like music which is later associated withe the woman. The woodcutter slowly walks on, the camera panning to watch as he recedes farther into the woods. The main thematic music begisn again. The camera tilts up with him as he stands up straight again. He comes forward and goes off. A gong is sounded. His speech runs over this and the next two shots.
Then the police called me to testify. It was I who found the body first Pause. No, sir. Nothing at all. Only a womans hat, caught on a branch And a piece of rope Pause Yes, sir. Yes, that was all I saw. I swear it.
Behind him is the woodcutter. The priest is testifying. I saw the murdered man when he was still alive. Well, it was about three days ago. It was in the afternoon. Yes, it was on the road between Sekiyama and Yamashina.
Music in. Pan as he approaches the camera and passes it. He stops, back to camera. From the opposite direction a samurai approaches, leading a horse by the bridle. On the horse is a woman, sitting sidesaddle. The priest steps back and looks after them pan ; they recede into the distance. I couldnt see her face.
The man was armed. He had a sword, bow and arrows. Oh, it is true-life is ephemeral, as fleeting as the morning dew. But the pity of it. What a pity that he should have died like that. Beside him, tied up, sits the bandit, Tajomaru.
Behind them sit the woodcutter and the priest. Yes, indeed. That very same notorious bandit who has been so much talked about, even in the outskirts of the city. When I finally caught him It was toward evening, day before yesterday, by the riverbank at Katsura. Dolly to CU of agent.
Music in, continuing into next shot. Camera pans to follow as agent walks along the bank. He hears a horse neigh, and runs along the bank away from camera toward a man seen in LS range lying as though in agony.
He leans over to lift the man and loses his grip, stumbling back into the river. In the background, the agent in the river. The camera travels left from them to reveal, farther down along the bank, a bow, arrows, and finally a horse.
CONTD There was a black-lacquered quiver holding seventeen arrows in all- they all had hawk feathers. The bow was bound in leather But just imagine a fierce bandit like Tajomaru here being thrown by the very animal that he himself had stolen. It was retribution. The bandit wheels toward him threateningly, hisses through his teeth, then bursts into laughter. Dont be stupid. On that day Triumphant music. Tajomaru, shouting, gallops across and off the screen in low foreground.
Tajomaru, stretched on the ground, drinks from a small stream. His heavy panting is heard. Toward evening it got so I couldnt bear it any longer and so I got off the horse and lay down.
I know youre going to cut off my head sooner or later-Im not hiding anything. It was me, Tajomaru, who killed that man. Yes, I did it. It was a hot afternoon, about three days ago, that I first saw them. And then all of a sudden there was this cool breeze. If it hadnt been for that breeze, maybe I wouldnt have killed him. The bell-like music, like distant wind chimes, is heard as he concludes; the music continues into the next shot.

Originality seems a modern concern. By the time the first copyright laws came into being in the eighteenth century storytelling as a whole already had a long history, indeed a tradition, of adapting and appropriating plots, themes and motifs from other works and without it literature would have stagnated very early in its development. It is lost because there is no more weaving and spinning to go on while they are being listened to.
