    Shocking but true

    The violence meter is pretty much stuck in the red throughout this show, based on two men - one Korean, the other Japanese - who met as rivals in footraces. That competition continued and intensified throughout their teenage years, then came World War II. The Japanese forced Koreans into military duty for the empire, and the Japanese commander shows unrestrained brutality in the midst of a total defeat against a Soviet tank unit. The two are taken prisoner and placed in a camp surrounded by frozen forests, where everyone behaves like a wild dog in an environment that has but one rule: only the strongest live. Again pressed into service (or otherwise executed on the spot), they face the Nazis and are routed, thus ending up on the shores of Normandy on D-Day. It's fascinating that these men were swept up by events beyond their control to go from the Orient to the banks of the English Channel - and that they survived all the hell and depravity of war in battle after battle. The ending carries special weight in its redemptive change, proving that humanity can show goodness even after untold horrors. A landmark historic film with a tremendous budget, but don't try watching this if you can't bear a couple hours of raging violence.
