FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
David Bowie stars as Jack Celliers, an English officer who arrives in a Japanese POW camp after an exhausting trial. Yonnoi (musician Ryuichi Sakamato, who also wrote the memorable soundtrack), the new camp commandant, becomes obsessed with breaking the new inmate's spirit, whilst Lieutenant Colonel Lawrence (Tom Conti) tries to mediate between them. As two different codes of honour clash, Yonnoi forces a confrontation with Celliers that brings them to the point of no return. From critically acclaimed Director Nagisa Ôshima ('In the Realm of the Senses'), 'Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence' was nominated for the Palme d'Or in 1983, and won a BAFTA for Best Score in 1984.
