Director: Takashi Yamazaki
Language: Japanese (subtitled in English)
Takashi Yamazaki’s 2013 film about World War II kamikaze pilots generated both big box-office receipts and major controversy. Boiled down, it’s about one pilot’s wish to return home alive, despite being branded a coward by his more gung-ho comrades e_SEmD and the mystery of why he changed his mind. Junichi Okada portrays the conflicted hero as a hard-eyed, if straight-arrow, veteran pilot. The VII Pillars Entertainment Blu-ray comes with subtitles.
