Directed by Kihachi Okamoto (岡本喜八) in 1971, this 149-minute docudrama examines the final stand against the advancing Allied troops---the bloodiest battle of the Pacific War.
It depicts the horrors of war to a level never before seen as the desperate Japanese Army tries to demonstrate to the Americans what they should expect when they assault the Japanese mainland.
It also illustrates the strength of the ordinary Okinawans who endured the unendurable.
It is a shockingly heart-wrenching anti-war drama.
