An agonizing portrait of desperate Japanese soldiers stranded in a strange land during World War II, Kon Ichikawa’s Fires on the Plain is a compelling descent into psychological and physical oblivion, and one of the most powerful works from one of Japanese cinema’s most versatile filmmakers.

"12.3.2014 Japanilaiset sotilaat ovat sikin sokin jossakin missä lie-paikassa ja kulkevat etsien joko joukkojensa kokoontumispaikkaa tai kenties paikkaa jossa antautua jenkeille. Tarinan päähenkilö kulkee kulkemistaan, aina välillä tavaten muuta miehistöä ja sitten taas kadottaen heidät. Ruokaa ei oikein pahemmin ole ja olosuhteet eivät ole muutenkaan kovin mieltyisät, kun varsinaisia kavereita ei saa ja kannibalismia puhutaan harrastettavan joukkojen kesken. Tämähän oli melko mu"

"1945, World War II Era. Set in the final days of the Second World War, the Japanese army is in dire condition on the Philippines. Cut off from supplies and with no hope of relief, rescue, or reinforcements, the battered army must battle hunger, disease, and an enemy that surrounds them day and night. Very good perspective of the demoralized soldier who is guided only by survival and hunger and the terrible things people do to stay alive. Over 300,000 Japanese soldiers died on the Philippines, ma"
