Directed by Kon Ichikawa | 1959

With Eiji Funakoshi, Osamu Takizawa, Mickey Curtis

"Obsessionally fixed on the sheer horror of human existence."
—Chicago Reader

One of the most intense anti-war films ever made, this shattering WWII drama follows a Japanese soldier, sick with tuberculosis, as he wanders the wasteland of a battle-scarred Philippine island. Along the way he encounters a grisly landscape where starving men have resorted to the ultimate taboo in order to survive. “No other film on the horrors of war has gone anywhere near as far.” — Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
