Two Line Reviews - #166

Movie: Letters from Iwo Jima (Japanese,2006)

Plot: A commander and a set of soldiers guarding the all important gateway island of Japan 'Iwo Jima' from the impending attacks of the USA live with their parted families through letters. The sheer purposelessness of war and the similarity in soldiers across parties is reflected in the end.

  • Clint Eastwood's films have one thing in common. The emotions, the message - they all get injected slowly but powerfully like cortisone injected into the vein. This film is no exception.
  • The fine performances of the persons who play the commander, the soldier Saito & the Olympics gold medallist.
  • Excellent art work, graphics and cinematography are evident in the shatteringly realistic air & water attack based war sequences.
Yet another cherishable Clint Eastwood classic, in Japanese this time.
