Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence

This 1983 Oshima movie is one of the most impressive world war two movies I have ever seen, helped of course by the fabulous music, including one of my all-time favourite songs, Forbidden colours by David Sylvian. The lead role is played astonishingly well by David Bowie. The poster is worthwhile as well, in its almost cartoon like minimalism. And of course, a suitable title for today.

More on this movie in the IMDB article linked to below.
