Die Brücke am Kwai by David Lean( visu )
5 editions published between 1957 and 2009 in German and Polish and held by 8 libraries worldwide
Siam im Kriegsjahr 1943: Der japanische Kommandant eines Kriegsgefangenenlagers im Dschungel erhält den Befehl, in kürzester Frist eine strategisch wichtige Eisenbahnbrücke über den Fluß Kwai zu errichten. Ein englisches Gefangenenregiment soll die Arbeit ausführen. Doch die britischen Offiziere, angeführt von Oberst Nicholson, weigern sich unter Berufung auf das Kriegsge- fangenenrecht, körperliche Arbeit zu leisten. Lagerkommandant Saito reagiert mit scharfen Diziplinarterror; zwischen ihm und Nicholson entbrennt ein tagelanger Psychokrieg. Unter zunehmen- dem Termindruck beauftragt Saito die Offiziere schließlich mit der Leitung der Bauarbeiten. Nicholson, von Ehrgeiz und mili- tärischem Pflichteifer gepackt, erbringt Höchstleistungen. Doch als "seine" Brücke endlich steht, pirscht sich ein alliiertes Sprengkommando durch den Dschungel heran ... David Leans Cinemascope-Epos wurde zwiespältig aufgenommen: Während Skeptiker in ihm eine Huldigung unbedingter militärischer Pflichterfüllung sahen, werteten es andere als ironische Kritik an der absurden Sinnlosigkeit eben dieses Gehorsams und Ehrgeizes. Das berühmte Bauwerk - mit 35 Metern Höhe und einer Länge von 130 Metern die größte Brückenkulisse der Filmgeschichte - wurde innerhalb von acht Monaten von 1000 Arbeitern mit Hilfe von 35 Elefanten errichtet
