Approved | | Drama, War
In World War II, during the Japanese invasion of Burma, the lost remnant of a British Army Brigade HQ, led by the ruthless Captain Alan Langford, escapes through the jungle toward the British lines.
Gordon Jackson (Sgt. McKenzie) and Burt Kwouk (Japanese Soldier) reprised their role from the original television version Yesterday's Enemy (1958).
He knew there's only one way to fight a war, any war. With your gloves off.
Set in Burma but the soundtrack of birds in the jungle includes the Kookaburra which is native to Australia and only found in Australia.
There is no 'The End' at the end of the film. The camera merely pans away from a memorial which reads 'WHEN YOU GO HOME TELL THEM OF US AND SAY- FOR THEIR TOMORROW WE GAVE OUR TODAY'; and silence, but with just birds singing.
