Trivia

The film's opening prologue states: "Z Special Force was a secret operations unit of the Australian Army in World War Two. It was made up of volunteers from all branches of the Allied Forces and came under the direct command of General Douglas Macarthur. Z Special carried out two hundred and eighty four undercover missions in the South West Pacific Area, the most famous being two daring raids codenamed 'Jaywick' and 'Rimau'. In the first of these, the 'KRAIT', a captured Japanese fishing boat set out from Australia on the longest range seaborne raid ever undertaken in the history of war. It penetrated deep into Japanese held territory covering, on the voyage, a total distance of eleven thousand miles. The events depicted in this film are true and are recorded in the military archives of the British, Australian and Japanese forces." See more »

best film I've EVER seen!!
2 August 2002 | by (Mullumbimby Australia) – See all my reviews

I was overtaken by the emotion. Unforgettable rendering of a wartime story which is unknown to most people. The performances were faultless and outstanding.
