    Excellent movie, the first one of a trilogy about WWII in the eyes of a Japanese humanist. This first one depicts life in the Japanese prisoner-of-war camps. How the Chinese were treated. Very interesting. 8 years 3 months ago

    Though the film is long, you forget about it minutes into the film...and by the end you want more. This is cinema at it's best! 5 years 3 months ago

    or you could just call it "The Human Condition: Part I" like IMDb does, although they include the epithet "No Greater Love". 12 years 10 months ago
