Yes, it is Saturday and after all the chores are finished I like to tune into a
great movie and do some knitting.
Todays choice - To End All Wars.
At first I thought it was going to be one of those typical war movies but oh was I wrong.
What made me choose this movie today was the connection to Burma.
So often we don't think of Southeast Asia when we think of WW II.
So much has been written on the German involvement and
while every school student learns about Japan's impact on us during this conflict
I don't think they realize just what was happening around that area.
Inspired by real-life events, this drama explores the experiences of Capt. Ernest Gordon and other Japanese prisoners of war enlisted to build the Railroad of Death.
As the men struggle to maintain their sanity and will, they begin to drift apart.
If you get a chance to view this movie, you won't be disappointed. I warn you though - it is graphic in portraying the hell these men went through. BUT, there is something more here and what changes the hearts of the men held captive.
