    Excellent movie, the first one of a trilogy about WWII in the eyes of a Japanese humanist. This first one depicts life in the Japanese prisoner-of-war camps. How the Chinese were treated. Very interesting. 5 years 6 months ago

    or you could just call it "The Human Condition: Part I" like IMDb does, although they include the epithet "No Greater Love". 10 years 2 months ago
