Absorbing, engrossing, superlative film from every angle
This film has had the greatest impact on me of any film that I have ever seen. It was mesmerizing. It revealed dimensions of Asia-Pacific history hitherto unbeknownst to me--it sent me flying to the library to look up further details on that period (1894-1941). Not much there. I did learn, however, that many well-educated Japanese noblemen committed suicide rather than participate in a war they did not believe in. To see this film is to begin to understand the background of the war in the Pacific. To top it off, the story, the actors, and direction are of the highest caliber. Why has PBS never shown it again? Why is it not available on home video?? This film haunts me
