Harp of Burma( Visual )

2 editions published between 1956 and 1987 in Japanese and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A poetic trek across a pain-filled landscape, this powerful antiwar film is a classic example of Kon Ichikawa's (An actor's revenge, Fires on the plain) visual intensity and unyielding pacifism. Set at the close of World War II, The [harp of Burma] focuses on the obsessions that drive one Japanese soldier to remain in Burma, even as his unit tries desperately to steal into neutral territory. On a mission to convince renegade mountain fighters of Japan's official surrender, the company's harp-playing scout, Private Mizushima, is wounded, then saved by a Buddhist priest. Ichikawa stunningly evokes Mizushima's spiritual conversion as the private, disguised in priest's robes, traverses an endless plain of corpses and begins the insurmountable task of burying Japan's war dead"--Videocassette sleeve
