Trivia

This World War II movie set on a Pacific Island features an American officer, a Swedish nun and a Japanese soldier. As such, this movie utilizes character set ups used previously in both Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison (1957) (a lone American soldier and lone Irish nun) and Hell in the Pacific (1968) (a lone Japanese soldier and a lone American soldier), two World War II war movies with minimal characters in isolationist Pacific Island settings.

Should Warrant A Look On DVD
7 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are only a few actors in this film, which makes it somewhat of an oddity.

Gary Graham plays an American soldier fighting off the Japanese on a remote Pacific island in the last few days of World War II. He is accompanied by a missionary nun, Maria Holvoe, who looks anything like a nun. Maria is a sultry, sexy woman and complete miscast here. Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa plays Graham's main adversary. He is a noble fighter who wants to win fair-and-square....and that costs him.

The main attribute of this film is the stylish photography and it needed a DVD treatment because many of the scenes are in darkness and not easy to see. It's wonderfully filmed and the story is decent enough to warrant a better look, so I may buy it. The only viewing I had of this was on VHS.
