Fires On The Plain
Rated
An appalling film; one that will wrench you and leave you emotionally drained. In the Philippines, in the waning days of W.W.II, the last remnants of Hirohito's Army have reverted to savagery and cannibalism; the one man free from this deadly cycle is Private Tamura, so far gone in the ravages of tuberculosis that the marauding hunters always reject him. As he stumbles from one gruesome spectacle to the next, Tamura becomes a figure like Christ of Candide - an innocent trapped in a landscape of corruption and terror. "Nobi" is truly unique, one of the few film equivalents for a novel like Jerzy Kozinski's "The Painted Bird."
