Storyline

Charged with insubordination for punching a superior, Sergeant Kosugi is shipped to China in the last desperate days of the Second World War. His commander, Captain Sakuma, is vicious and dictatorial. Sakuma places Kosugi in charge of training for combat what once was the military band. Kosugi must somehow prepare his inept soldiers for the rigors of combat. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Best example of the Japanese war movie industry

I did not know the film maker. I must admit that I am not so used to Rising Sun Country directors. I already saw some war features from this side of the world, in black and white and also in wide screen, like this one. The topic has already been told just above, so I won't repeat it.

A beautiful, poignant and action packed war movie where the characters are fully described and hold you all along this film. A very sad tale too. I know that American film makers and producers would never show us this kind of ending. You can also watch some humorous sequences.

Yes, an unforgettable film which stay in your memory long after watching it. A must see. Even for non war movies buffs.
