Under the Flag of the Rising Sun
Director Kinji Fukasaku's searing antiwar drama stars Sachiko Hidari as Sakie Togashi, a widow seeking the truth behind her husband's court-martial and subsequent execution at the close of World War II. Determined to clear his name, she interviews survivors of his garrison, uncovering tangled testimonies that form a tapestry of atrocity, heroism, cowardice and chaos. Fukasaku's striking visual style heightens the effect of this powerful film.
