One of the best anti-war movies ever, really thought provoking. Terada's performance is terrific and Nakadai Tatsuya is a wonderful narrator.
There are truly heartbreaking moments but it's full of humour too, a very special kind of humour. The style being obviously very different, I wouldn't hesitate to compare this movie to Kobayashi's trilogy or to Ichikawa's Burmese Harp. Made me think about Masumura's Red Angel too. Great movie.
It should be better known and shown all over the world but I doubt it would change much as many people are idiots indeed. You'll understand if you watch it ;-)
