The director Kon Ichikawa, known for his shocking and courageous depiction of the savagery of the war in the movie "Fires on the Plain", which took place on the Philippine island of Leyte during the Second World Peace Movie, gave us a really great view of the vanquished Japonese military in Burma at the end of the conflict.
"The Burmese Harp", no different than "Fire on the Plains", is about the vanquished Japanese-era. But where " fires on the plain " shows the desperation of the audience the movie "Burmese Harp" gives us an insight into the spiritually awakened life of a Japonese military at the end of the Second World War.
Mizushima ( "Shoji Yasui") is the name of the military and the leading character. In contrast to Ichikawa's later movie "Fires on the Plain", this movie is not so much about the infernal nightmare of warfare, but rather about the infernal consequences of the Burma battle and how much the horrors of this terrible battle burden the consciousness of a Japonese warrior.
To those of you who are not acquainted with World War II or the Burma campaign, it was in Burma where the Emperor's Armed Forces of Japan lost the most lives in World War II. Mizushima in the movie consents to go to a walled fortress where the last remains of Japonese troops are hiding and refuse to give themselves up.
But something goes awry, because the Jap troops are refusing to give themselves up. When he drives through Burma, he sees nothing but the bodies of the deceased Japan. Symbolically, in an act of dying and being reborn, Mizushima takes on the part of a friar and chooses not to go back to his unity in the prisoner-of-war camps or even to go back to Japan until all his comrades are interred.
It is his mission to bury all the people he encounters on his trip through Burma: Mizushima' s terror of seeing the corpses of the buried unhuman beings has hit him deeply, and he has become a different being. It is a really deep and moving movie.
Considering that this movie was made in 1956, only 11 years after the end of the Second World War, it is a classic that must be on par with some of the greatest anti-war movies of all times. The movie is a good 3 years before "Fires on the Plain".
In my opinion, for an early movie that deals with this kind of conflict, this is one of the greatest movies from Japan that deals with the traumatic events of the Second World war. Particularly when you consider that it was led by a Japanese and published in Japan.
