javascript:void(0) le petit bon bon movies: Yasukuni

Thursday, October 16, 2008


IMDB Rating: 7.4


The 120-minute film looks at the history of the Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo's Chiyoda Ward, where more than 2 million of Japan's war dead are enshrined. More than 1,000 of them are war criminals, including 14 Class-A war criminals, convicted at the 1946-1948 Tokyo tribunal, among them, Hideki Tojo. The film shows not only the well-reported political incidents associated with the shrine, but also takes an in-depth look at the shrine's sword-making tradition, the Yasukuni sword being the film's underlying motif. Serene footage of the last living Yasukuni swordsmith, 90-year-old Naoji Kariya, working on presumably his final creation, is interspersed with other scenes of chaos filmed at the site.
