"The Burmese Harp"
Directed by Kon Ichikawa
A Japanese army
private in Burma is so revolted by the carnage of war that he refuses to return home.
Dressed as a Buddhist monk, he remains to bury the dead. The first Japanese film to stress
pacifism, Burmese Harp is remarkable for its pulsating black and white images and
its humanist fervor. Japanese with English subtitles.
