SHAKA - Inspired by Ben-Hur and The Ten Commandments, Daiei Studios chose no less than the life of Buddha as the subject of Japan's first 70mm historical religious action adventure film.
The epic tale of the man who changed the lives of half the world... Created magnificently on film by the producer of 'Rashomon' and 'Gate of Hell', Nagata Masaichi.
The film moves through the deity's life from his renunciation of his father's fortunes and his lengthy meditation under the Bodhi tree, via the transformation of Prince Siddharta into Buddha, to the miracles he performs for the poor and needy as his teachings spread across the land.
