This is a beautiful classic, which ... read more

The film deals with the situation of British prisoners of war during World War II who are ordered to build a bridge to accommodate the Burma-Siam railway. Their instinct is to sabotage the bridge but, under the leadership of Colonel Nicholson (Alec Guinness), they are persuaded that the bridge should be constructed as a symbol of British morale, spirit and dignity in adverse circumstances.

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (1950's) (127 movies items)

" Notes: Among the massive epics directed by David Lean, in my opinion, this movie must be the most accessible one. I think that the very best remains, by far, ‘Lawrence of Arabia’, but this movie has a running time of almost 220 minutes and, therefore but also for some other reasons, it is a rather demanding flick. In my opinion, 'The Bridge on a the River Kwai' is more an exciting feature and, basically some kind of forefather to our own blockbusters. Basically, it is a really entertaining"
