Excellent movie about WW-II, communism and espionage
26 June 2003 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

Just before WW-II and while it is developed the world is suffering many changes, between them the imperialist thoughts of Japanese people and the Communist actions taken by the Russians.

One day all of the sudden out in China Hidemi Osaki, a columnist for the Asahi Newspaper in Japan meets with Mr. Johnson (later known as Sorge) they both have something in common, they are very attracted to the ideals of communism and against the imperialist ideals of Japan.

Sorge being a Russian spy finds Osaki very helpful since he has access to all the information regarding the military strategies of Japan. But as the war advances the Japanese menace on Russian territory becomes very dangerous so Sorge is sent to Japan as a German columnist, there he is supposed to meet with other foreigners and a Japanese that is in the side of the American Government.

In Japan Sorge handles to find Osaki and makes a team who tries to prevent the advance of Japanese troops by means of sending information to the allies.

As time goes on, each member of the team finds its own place in the Japanese territory, its a story of love, loyalty, a little bit of action but the most attractive part of the movie is the historical content witch is very very complete.
