Ran (1985) Poster


Pîtâ: Kyoami



  • Kyoami : Man is born crying. When he has cried enough, he dies.

  • Kyoami : In a mad world only the mad are sane.

  • Kyoami : Are there no gods... no Buddha? If you exist, hear me. You are mischievous and cruel! Are you so bored up there you must crush us like ants? Is it such fun to see men weep?

    Tango : Enough! Do not blaspheme! It is the gods who weep. They see us killing each other over and over since time began. They can't save us from ourselves.

  • Hidetora : I am lost...

    Kyoami : Such is the human condition.

  • Kyoami : Why stay with this mad old man? If the rock you stay on starts to roll, jump clean. Or you'll go with it and be squashed. Only a fool stays aboard.

  • Kyoami : A serpent's egg is white and pure. A bird's is speckled and soiled.

    Hidetora : This is a castle... Here's a wall.

    Kyoami : The bird left the speckled egg for the white.

    Hidetora : Strange...

    Kyoami : The egg cracks; out comes a snake.

    Hidetora : Empty space above the wall. Why?

    Kyoami : The bird is gobbled by the snake.

    Hidetora : Where am I? Who am I?

    Kyoami : Stupid bird!

  • Kyoami : The failed mind sees the heart's failings...

  • Hidetora : [Hidetora awakens in the ruins of a castle]  Where are we?

    Kyoami : We're in paradise!
