The Burmese Harp

A wounded Japanese soldier struggles to return to his unit, disguising himself as a Buddhist monk and picking his way through corpse-strewn battlefields. Kon Ichikawa's 1956 antiwar film was widely hailed at the time of its release for its power and commitment, though by today's standards it's likely to appear uncomfortably didactic. With Shoji Yasui. In Japanese with subtitles. 116 min.
