Storyline

In 1942 British soldier Jack Celliers comes to a japanese prison camp. The camp is run by Yonoi, who has a firm belief in discipline, honour and glory. In his view, the allied prisoners are cowards when they chose to surrender instead of commiting suicide. One of the prisoners, interpreter John Lawrence, tries to explain the japanese way of thinking, but is considered a traitor.

Cant understand13 January 2016

Great movie...great soundtrack..but there are long sections where there is only Japanese spoken. This creates a hardship on really understanding the story.
