Storyline

Lt. Koji Kitami is a navigator-bombardier in Japan's Naval Air Force. He participates in the Japanese raid on the U.S. Naval Base at Pearl Harbor in 1941 and is welcomed with pride in his hometown on his return. As Japan racks up victory after victory in the Pacific War, Kitami is caught up in the emotion of the time and fights courageously for the standard of Japanese honor. But his assuredness of his government's righteousness is shaken after the Japanese navy is defeated in the debacle of Midway. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Interesting perspective!
27 August 2001 | by (Hamilton, NZ) – See all my reviews

This film, in Japanese, can be watched even without knowing a word of Japanese. It is pretty old now, but well put together.

Personally, I have seen many films about Pearl Harbor, but the ones that are quite interesting are from the other sides perspective. Most war movies I have seen have been saying that the Allies were the 'goodies' and the Axis powers were the 'baddies'. That is why this film is an excellent way to show how the Japanese felt about the Pearl Harbor bombing!

RATING: WORTH LOOKING AT!
