Avoidable...

I am deceived by this Japanese war movie. It's a mix up between newsreel stuff and usual topic of a soldier who has to go to fight against his wife's will. The usual tale, but badly done, badly acted, with a terrible editing. Nothing to do with the previous Japanese flick I commented several days ago, starring great actors and with a powerful story, gripping at the most.

But for anyone who knows anything about WW2, it's OK.

I won't argue about the propaganda talk which wants to tell us that US government pushed Japan into the war, that president Roosevelt was responsible of Pearl Harbor tragedy... As I told before about another movie, I am not historian enough to go further on that question, even if I have my own opinion. But IMDb is not the place to talk about this...

You can live without it.
