Gritty, powerful anti-war drama from Japan focuses on a doomed unit of soldiers in the closing days of World War II's Philippine campaign and its degeneration into barbarism as the situation becomes hopeless. Dark humor and an unflinching sense of realism drive director Kon Ichikawa's sentiments home. Eiji Funakoshi stars. 104 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: Japanese Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English; interviews. In Japanese with English subtitles.
