Storyline

The story of 3 Men who served together in the Japanese Imperial Army during WWII. The story is told in flashbacks from modern day Japan to scenes on the island they are defending. In modern Japan, one of the men falls in love with a woman who is being deceived and victimized by a cult to get her money. After her suicide, he takes drastic action that forces his comrades in arms to avenge his death against the cult's headquarters. A fine subplot with a young neighbor boy helps drive home the point of the deep scars still carried by survivors of the war. Written by JCclimber

touching tale about the harmony of people influencing one another...
4 March 2002 | by (dun Cannobaen, Belgium) – See all my reviews

This film is so very rich. A way to understand the tribulations of old age and the mentality of the WWII-generation in today's Japan, as well as the absolute obedience demanded of wartime survivors and the cult-like way of extortion-companies to control their members. Along with the quiet build-up and the intelligent flash-back management, the symbolic really moved me.
